Looks like they leave out "the little guys". I checked mine and no match, and I contributed to Ron Paul.

They are likely pulling from open secrets and it takes quite a few months for the data to show up there.

I wonder if that site will include all contributions or just contributions to declared candidates?

My donation to Fred Thompson (from earlier this year) shows up here (www.usatoday.com/news/pdf/thompson-donors-july-31-2007.xls): www.usatoday.com/news/pdf/thompson-donors-july-31-2007.xls

It's a fun spreadsheet to play around with. Sort by state and you can see the Californians who contributed to Fred.

I gave Fred $2,300, and I'm not on the list.

Were Fred's donations being reported yet? He wasn't yet a candidate.
