Crossfiltering with Hawaii Campaign Finance Data
By looking at public data on state and county candidate contributions, expenditures, and disclosures published on data.hawaii.gov we can take a broad look at the amount of money influencing politics in Hawai‘i. Rather than focusing on individual candidates as has be done in other places, I wanted to quickly compare different aspects of the data that can otherwise remain hidden.
