Updated Website Allows Users to Track Campaign Finances and Lobbying Information

WASHINGTON, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CQ Roll Call today announced that they have re-launched an enhanced version of Political Moneyline, an online website and database tracking campaign finance.

"The new web site acts as a cash register for the billions of dollars moving in federal politics during a two-year cycle," said Kent Cooper, Vice President of Capitol Hill Access Inc., who has worked with Tony Raymond for over a decade to provide campaign finance intelligence to subscribers. "No matter whether the money moves through candidates, PACs, parties, Section 527 organizations, or lobbying groups, Political MoneyLinecounts it. The site provides exciting new tools to search and cross-reference financial transactions - giving users a better understanding of the interests and actions of those involved with public policy making."

Political Moneyline is the leading source of comprehensive, timely and objective campaign finance and lobbying information. Political Moneyline tracks the flow of money through the political system by providing campaign donation and expenditure data from the 1979-80 election cycle through the most recent filings.

The new Political MoneyLine product will include all of the information and services of the current CQ Moneyline product, but will be enhanced with more financial and political intelligence, including new functionality to compare, rank and research Political Action Committees (PACs) and candidates. The site will also feature a breaking news blog based on daily electronically filed reports of financial transactions and shifting of political money by PACs and candidates.
