    Your name will be on the visualization page for that politician, as well as a kickstarter thank you page.

    Pledge $2,600 or more About $2,600

    Presidential: Sponsor a President of the United States.

    In 1992, President Clinton raised $33 million to run for president, by 2012 President Obama raised close to $1 billion. At $2,600, you will be backing the FEC limit of an individual to a politician.

    Of course, many donors manage to double this amount, because the primary and main elections technically count as two different elections.

    Your name will be on the visualization page for that politician, as well as a kickstarter thank you page.
