Introducing the new and improved Party Time


Just in time for the really big political parties in Tampa and Charlotte, Party Time's gussied up!

Four years after it launched to cover the 2008 presidential elections, Party Time, the only resource that tracks presidential and congressional fundraisers and convention parties for political movers and shakers has gotten a makeover. New features, including a calendar tracking the frequency of events and a new section dedicated to the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention, make Party Time even more user friendly.

The new look is part of Sunlight's convention coverage, which will include on-the-ground reports, photos posted to our 180 Degrees project–where users can identify the pols, lobbyists, bundlers and donors who hit the town in Tampa or step out in Charlotte, social media coverage and Sunlight Live coverage of some of the critical moments in the convention.

Party Time continues to offer all the same features–actual invites to fundraiers, like this one or this one–scads of downloadable data via CSV or our API, at a glance schedules of upcoming fundraisers and the latest additions to the site, plus our indispensible Party Time blog, covering the latest and the strangest, the famous and even the foreign efforts of politicians to keep their campaign coffers flush with cash. And of course, if you have an invitation to a fundraiser or private convention party to share with us, you can upload it here.
