Fundraising Starts Up Soon After Election, Filings Show
Election Day marks the end of a political campaign. It also marks the beginning of fundraising for the next campaign. Federal disclosure filings show that plenty of money was flowing through Washington immediately following Nov. 6. The most active political action committee in the weeks after the election belonged to the U.S. subsidiary of Swiss banking giant UBS AG. The company gave $122,000 in the three weeks following Election Day, the latest period for which information is available.
