2012 PUERTO RICO RACE FOR RESIDENT COMMISSIONER PIERLUISI vs ALOMAR Contributions - Top Industries


PIERLUISI vs ALOMAR

Contributions - Top Industries

2012 Race: Puerto Rico District 00

Select a cycle: 
Most members of Congress get the bulk of their campaign contributions from two main sources: the industries that make up the economic base of their home district and the Washington-based interest groups that pay more attention to the member's committee assignments in Congress. In addition, most Democrats receive substantial sums from labor unions.
From this table, you can get a flavor of which are the top industries giving to the candidates running for Congress in your district. Do the industries match your local economy, or are they more Washington-based? If the latter, the candidate may have divided loyalties on issues where the interests of their cash constituents conflict with those of the voters who elected them.
