Members of House Committee on Foreign Affairs

$ = 2008/2010 (so far) campaign cycle contributions from Florida's hard line US-Cuba Democracy PAC. Larger contributions reflect the PAC's judgment of whom it is most important to influence. $0 can mean the Representative is seen as hopelessly pro-travel or a sure thing against. "na" means not in office in 2008.

More than half of the members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs received contributions: 26 of 47 received a total of $178,000. Some recipients, like Chairman Berman, have publicly expressed support for travel. Others who are unalterably opposed did not receive anything.

While it is perfectly legal to accept out-of-district PAC money, constituents may legitimately wonder to whom their Representative is most loyal.
