An analysis of available campaign-contribution data by the National Institute on Money in State Politics has found that the Republican Party began its war early and has had a decided advantage going into the 2000 elections.
The contribution data analyzed was drawn from two primary sources -- the Federal Election Commission, which discloses contributions from national parties and sources to all 50 states (as well as contributions to candidates for federal office), and the National Institute on Money in
State Politics' databases of state records, which show funds coming to state-level candidates and
committees from all sources, including national parties and committees.
