Have you ever wondered who finances political candidates campaigns? Do they self fund, or do they depend on others to help them pay their campaign bills?
To find out at the local level, you have to file an open records request with each entity and wait days before the request is filled. But at the State level you just have to make a few clicks on the Texas Ethics Commission website and voila, you now have the information.
To make it even easier, I have attached a link to each of the candidates campaign reports in the Texas State Representative District 4 race.
