* Incumbent

HOW TO READ THESE CHARTS: Nearly every candidate running for Congress or other high political office has a "golden Rolodex" with the names of potential high-dollar donors. Those donors tend to live in high-income areas, or to work in downtown business centers. These charts show where each candidate's top donors came from. In most cases, candidates' richest zip codes will come from within their own states or congressional district. Some of the nation's most generous zip codes may also show up - these are chiefly in Washington, D.C. and New York.

One thing to keep in mind is that while most donors list their home address when making contributions, others list their business address - so the top zip codes will reflect both wealthy suburbs and central business districts.

METHODOLOGY: The totals here are taken from individual donations of more than $200, as reported to the Federal Election Commission. PAC contributions are not included, since many PACs have headquarters in Washington, DC, even though their members may be scattered around the country.

NOTE: All the numbers on this page are for the 2005-2006 House election cycle, based on Federal Election Commission data released on Monday, April 24, 2006. Feel free to distribute or cite this material, but please credit the Center for Responsive Politics.
