A difference maker in elections

Our data can make all the difference in a tight election.

We offer an unparalleled source of public disclosures about Congress - including salaries, travel, personal financial disclosures, congressional office expenditures, family ties, lobbying and more. We provide deep background intel on members and staffers you can’t find anywhere else.

We aggregate all press releases and tweets and reports in one place so you can monitor just the people and issues you want. For campaigns with quick needs and on a tight budget, we offer 3-day and monthly access.
