Releasing our U.S. House Candidate Research Report

Yesterday, we released our second research report to help compliance teams navigate political contribution regulatory compliance. Download our 2020 Candidate Research Report on U.S. House Candidates here!

Our team of analysts compiled various research memos that provide background on the state and locally elected officials running for Federal office in 2020. The release of our US House report follows a similar Senate report released last month.

With election 2020 under way, we wanted to share this new resource that contains research on the thousands of US House candidates across all 50 states. The report lists the current elected offices each candidate holds (or their profession), and also notes some potentially relevant pension funds that could represent pay-to-play conflicts.

If you have any questions or want to schedule a demo with our team, feel free to reach out to [email protected]!
