In October 2007, the Tobacco-Free Kids Action Fund and Common Cause issued our annual report on tobacco industry political contributions to federal candidates, political parties and political action committees.
The Tobacco-Free Kids Action Fund also issues updates on contributions to federal candidates. The latest update details tobacco industry contributions made so far during the 2009-2010 election cycle. So far this election cycle, the tobacco industry has donated nearly one million dollars ($999,077) directly to federal candidates. During the 2007-2008 election cycle, the tobacco industry gave more than $2.0 million in contributions directly to federal candidates.
The National Institute on Money in State Politics tracks contributions to state candidates. The Institute maintains a database of all contributions to state candidates, including contributions from tobacco companies. The Institute's searchable databases are available to the public online, and are searchable by candidate, contributor and industry sector (including tobacco). Tobacco contributions to state candidates can be accessed at FollowTheMoney.org. The Institute also produces industry-specific reports.
