Money is the bread and butter of a political election. It makes more than just the world go round - it ensures you can buy ads, headquarters, and travel from state to state.

Sources of Money

  • Every candidate starts with a certain amount of money, dependent on how many ranks they have in their "Starting Money" stat. 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, $25,000, or $75,000 depending on the level.
  • Fundraising is a good way to get a large amount of cash into the war chest. Each state has a different amount of wealth, so how much you get from fundraising depends on where you're located.
  • Be careful not to run out of money! A rich donor will bail you out, but they usually have some...unsavory ties. Your voters will lose some enthusiasm for you every time this happens.
