  • This list was developed from information provided by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board. It does not include federal contributions or contributions to political non-profits.
  • Partisan calculations reflect donor giving to candidates and parties; they do not include donations to political action or independent expenditure groups.
  • Donor location and employment information were provided by the candidates, parties and PACs that reported the donations to state regulators.
  • Since most candidates loan their campaigns money, rather than donate it to them, it does not include those self-funders.
