More from the Open Secrets Report on the Rise of Out-of-State Political Contributions

“The data suggest that ideologically-driven donors from outside of the state have increased in relative importance in recent cycles. In 2012, candidates took 7%, on average, of all of their out-of-state money from ideologically-driven donors. That percentage nearly doubled over the next decade, with ideological donors typically making up 13% of the out-of-state donor pool during the 2022 election cycle. Ideological giving has increased slightly during the same period, but the giving by ideological out-of-state donors has outpaced the increase in ideological giving from in-state donors.”
