Fundraisers and Related Events
Events Not Tied to Fundraisers or Related Events

In a number of smaller states, including Indiana, Alabama, South Carolina,
Oklahoma, Oregon, Kansas, Utah, Nebraska, and Nevada, the numbers of fundraisers and
related events are roughly equal to the numbers of unrelated events, indicating that
presidents attend about as many events fundraising in these states as not. While we
cannot say that fundraising is what brings presidents to these states, on the relatively rare
occasions they spend time in these states, they choose to raise money close to half the
time.
How broadly distributed is the geography of presidential fundraising events
outside of the Washington, DC area? Figure 2 illustrates that a large preponderance of
fundraising activity takes place in the larger states.
How narrowly to presidents confine
their efforts? Table 4 provides the number of states in which presidents attended

In this study, calling a state large refers to its population, not to its geographic size.
