Project description

# django-fec-raw-data

A Django app to download, extract and load campaign finance from the Federal Election Commission.

It relies on the New York Times [Fech](http://nytimes.github.io/Fech/) library to download filings as CSV files, then loads them
into a database preserving all the fields in the raw data.
