MONEY, MONEY, MONEY….Via Hit & Run, here’s an interesting map that shows political fundraising using the familiar red state/blue state metaphor. On the left is fundraising by state and on the right it’s broken down by Zip Code. You can also get a county level map, as well as maps for each of the individual candidates.
Nothing obvious springs to mind looking at these maps except for the surprising redness of the Pacific Northwest and the surprising blueness of a group of southern/midwestern states clustered between Texas and Georgia. But it’s kind of fun to play around with.
