DC Tops Places with the Highest Rates of Political Giving

by - January 30, 2014

1. Washington, D.C. Metro Area
It’s no surprise to see the nation’s capital at the top of the list with contributions totaling $51.1 million. The D.C. metro area’s per capita contribution of $8.81 is almost twice as high as the second highest place on this list.  Of D.C.’s total contributions to the two major parties for the 2014 races, about 57% went to Democrats and 43% to Republicans. However, there were far more “no party” donations overall. Some of this year’s top overall donors in the nation are based here, such as the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees (AFSCME)—comprised of 3,400 local unions and donating exclusively to the Democratic Party and outside spending groups this season.
