Analyzing Special Interest Campaign Contributions: Patterns of Defense Campaign Contributions

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Why do interest groups donate the way they do? Interest groups are selective in deciding to whom they donate money. While there is much research on the interaction between interest groups and members of congress there is still more to be said for why interest groups donate to the members of congress that they do. This paper provides an empirical analysis of campaign contributions compared to which members of congress can best help interest groups achieve their legislative goals. It is clear that interests group donate more campaign contributions to candidates that they believe will win an upcoming election. There also appears to be a clear positive correlation between being on committees essential to an interest’s industry and large campaign contributions. To that end it is clear that interest groups give money to congressional candidates based on two important factors. First, interest groups give campaign contributions to candidates that are most likely to win. Second, Interest groups are more likely to give more money to members of congress who sit on committees essential to their industry.
