Question of the Day
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is mighty transparent these days, providing a handy-dandy, online map to display the locales of the nation’s heaviest contributors to White House hopefuls. Already, Democratic candidates have raised $95 million and Republicans $62 million, according to FEC records.
But there are magic ZIP codes that harbor those with the deepest pockets. Curious?
The top five are: 10021, 10022, 10128, 10028 and 10024 — all located on the East Side of Manhattan. In sixth place is 90210 of Los Angeles fame, followed by 10023 and 10019, both on Manhattan’s West Side. The lone Washington ZIP code — 20007 — is in ninth place, with 60614 (Chicago’s Lincoln Park district) in 10th place.
“We’ve always had the philosophy that we’re the primary source for this material,” FEC spokesman Bob Biersack told Forbes magazine. “We do feel like we have the responsibility to make the information approachable to more than just experienced campaign finance users.”
