Supplementary notes

* The remaining 69.8 percent of Morning Star Co's contributions went to outside spending groups.
Figures are based on contributions from political action committees, soft money donors, and individuals giving $200 or more. Only those groups giving $5,000 or more are listed. Soft money applies only to cycles 1992-2002. In many cases, the organizations themselves did not donate; rather the money came from the organization's PAC, its individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.
All donations took place during the 2015-2016 election cycle and were released by the Federal Election Commission on Friday, October 21, 2016.
