Relating Lobbyists to Campaign Contributions, 2019.

This chart shows companies who have hired lobbyists for 2019-2020, their registered lobbyists, the employers of those lobbyists (based on contribution reporting by candidates), and finally the office, candidate and volume of contributions made in in 2019.

The chart does not show contributions made on behalf of the companies, but more so offers a mapping of the relationships to legislators that these companies may have based on the contributions of the lobbyists they have hired. Contributions may very well be personal choices of the lobbyist with no connection to the company that has hired them or their employer.

The dataset was produced from a merge of data from the Hawaii State Ethics Commission’s Lobbyist Registration Statements with Campaign Contributions Received By Hawaii State and County Candidates based on the Lobbyists name.
