This project is a vizualization of Hawaii Campaign Spending data for Candidates. It was initially created for Civic*Celerator 2013.
Please note that this visualization is based on the official Hawaii Campaign Spending data which you can find on data.hawaii.gov: https://data.hawaii.gov/Community/Expenditures-Made-By-Hawaii-State-and-County-Candi/3maa-4fgr
But the data is actually pulled from a filtered/rolled-up view: https://data.hawaii.gov/Community/Expenditures-Made-By-Hawaii-State-and-County-Candi/gvuk-nbsz/data
To better understand the data you should take a look at the Campaign Finance Data Primer

Run deploys script
Then commit the changes. The site is served from the master branch of the common cause repo: https://github.com/CommonCauseHawaii/campaign_spending
