Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
In our preliminary hour of research, we were able to identify five Democratic Pacs that have spent a considerable sum of money on the 2020 election cycle. We'd recommend we continue with the project by identifying 8 - 10 Democrat political action committees (PACs) and the total amount they spend on overall marketing and digital marketing. Feel free to share any additional details you may have regarding the project.
In line with the goals of your project, we are also recommending research - to identify the top 8 - 10 individual donors to Democratic PACs in the 2020 election cycle. For each, we will provide their names and the total amount of money they have contributed so far.
