Candidates for state-level offices raised $2.1 billion in the 2001-2002 election cycle -- an amount fueled in part by numerous gubernatorial contests and by wealthy candidates who contributed generously to their own campaigns. This summary of campaign giving at the state level looks at the economic sectors giving to different types of races, the average amounts raised per voter, the amounts raised by candidates whose party controlled the legislature, contributions to political party committees in the states, and more.
