The MN Campaign Finance and Disclosure Board makes finding campaign finance data a little more complex than one might expect. The data isn't as recent as one might expect either - 12/31/2007 in most cases and most information provided is in *.pdf files. Exceptions are noted.

State Campaign Finance Databases

For information on state-level campaign finance, see Campaign Finance Databases from the State Agency Databases site.

The Roper Center has put together a web page on public opinion regarding this and historical election issues. It's called US Presidential Election 2008 and includes charts and tables on topics such as the war in Iraq and whether people would vote for a candidate who was female of any race or an African-American man.
