As a followup to my previous post on Google employee campaign contributions, I found a bug in my scraping script, and reran the data with the most recent FEC data (this is accurate as of scraping beta.fec.gov five minutes ago).

  • LIBERTARIAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE, INC.: $27,860
  • DCCC: $34,108
  • DSCC: $36,220
  • NRSC: $38,400
  • RO FOR CONGRESS INC.: $41,900
  • AMERICANS FOR RESPONSIBLE SOLUTIONS-PAC: $52,450
  • FRIENDS OF SCHUMER: $65,300
  • BERNIE 2016: $153,157
  • HILLARY FOR AMERICA: $249,957
  • GOOGLE INC. NETPAC: $604,671
