Census API + FEC campaign contribution data

This is just something I wanted to be able to visualize for my own entertainment/enlightenment... but I think it turned out pretty well. Still working on showing the time series of contributions in a given ZIP.

    Nice work so far can't wait to see where you go with this. +1 for tying the API with the current election cycle.

    I like this, but I can't get it to work for my zip. Is this a technical glitch?

    I'm not sure. What's your ZIP? No guarantee that my initial scrape didn't drop some ZIPs or do some bad aggregation.

    (Hmmm... and if people are actually looking at this, I suppose I should try to go back and get the final election cycle data loaded in. I didn't keep up with releases throughout the campaign, the site only shows activity as of whatever date 9 months ago I pushed it out.)

      My apologies, it seems I may have misunderstood the problem, if there is any help I can be, please let me know.
