In addition to their regular mid-year reports, Texas officeholders and candidates have to report money they raise during special legislative sessions, like the three this summer. Their second-session numbers are in, showing how much they raised between June 26 and July 30. We’ve grabbed the numbers for statewide officeholders and candidates and run them through our analyzer. This breaks down contributions by biggest donors, by states where the money originated, by zip code, by size of donation, and by the dates the money came in. Keep in mind that this includes the last days of the mid-year report. That’s a rush period for candidates who are trying to boost their numbers in the last days of June.
You can see the effects in the day-by-day fundraising tallies below, and if you’re interested, the July 15 reports are analyzed here.
