Abstract
This study contains campaign finance data for candidates in local elections held from 1989 to 2007 in the following cities: New York City (NY), Los Angeles (CA), Chicago (IL), San Francisco (CA), Seattle (WA), Miami (FL), Tampa (FL), Lexington (KY), Louisville (KY), Sacramento (CA), and Long Beach (CA). Data were also collected for the counties Hillsborough County/Tampa (FL) and Miami-Dade (FL). The study includes data on funds raised and spent, as well as candidate data and election returns, and both mayoral and city council races. Information was also collected on the size of the population of the candidates jurisdiction, the amount of political contributions and committee expenditures, whether the election was held in a publicly-funded city, and the outcome of the election. Demographic variables include candidate's sex, race, political party, education, and occupation.
