The million dollar club

At least 29 donors have given $1 million or more to state-level campaigns so far this election, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of state records collected by the nonpartisan National Institute on Money in State Politics. The Center looked at reports processed by the National Institute through Oct. 29 but the National Institute has completed less than 80 percent of those reports for this election cycle. The totals below reflect the minimum amount given to candidates and will only go up as more contribution reports are filed in the states.
