Sources of Money
- Every candidate starts with a certain amount of money, dependent on the characteristic of the same name. The new game difficulty modifiers also affect the size of the war chest.
- Campaign headquarters generate a certain amount of cash each week: $10,000, $30,000, or $90,000 depending on the level.
- Fundraising is a good way to get a large amount of cash into the war chest.
- A randomly encountered activist (rich donor) will usually give a substantial one-time donation to your war chest.
PR Clout, generated by outreach centers, is used to gain endorsements. Unlike political capital, it becomes useless once all the endorsements are taken.
