TIP OF THE DAY lets you see who is donating to politicians, political parties, and political action committees.  You can:

Track an industry. You may want to start with the industry you're working in now. We have more than 80 different industries profiled in our industries section, with political contributions going back a decade.
2. Check up on the candidates. Perhaps you're an undecided voter, or just curious about the money behind the current election. We have profiles of every congressional and Senate race in the country, as well as the presidential race

3. Check out your own backyard. Where are the contributions coming from in your area, and which political candidates are they going to? We'll make it easy for you to find out.

You can even find out to which campaigns the famous and infamous have donated.  For example:

The Center for Responsive Politics is a non-partisan, non-profit research group based in Washington, D.C. that tracks money in politics, and its effect on elections and public policy. The Center conducts computer-based research on campaign finance issues for the news media, academics, activists, and the public at large. The Center?s work is aimed at creating a more educated voter, an involved citizenry, and a more responsive government.
