While Campaign Headquarters will generate moderate donations every week, every so often a candidate will need a healthy boost to their campaign bank account. In these cases, the politician can fall back on Fundraiser events. To throw a fundraiser, the candidate chooses a state to visit and selects the Fundraising option.
Factors affecting outcome
- Wealth of the State: It should go without saying that the wealthier the state, the more money attendees will have to donate. When needing money, politicians can use the 'State Wealth' map mode to find the states worth visiting.
- Number of Fund Raisers Held: Supporters will start to grow tired of a 'mooch', so candidates should steer clear of states they've already visited. Too many fundraisers will turn a donation tidal-wave into a trickle.
- State Enthusiasm: If a candidate isn't well known or well liked, they can expect a poor turnout at any fund raising events they throw.
Maximizing the outcome
- High Enthusiasm: Headquarters and ads are great ways to boost one's enthusiasm without their direct presence. Victorious candidates tend to place these in wealthy states early, so when it's time to raise funds, their awareness (and thus approval) is considerably higher.
