Want to find out how much money has been donated to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign? You’re just a Google search away.

The search giant announced on Tuesday that it’s adding campaign finance information for the 2016 presidential nominees to its search results.

Thus, if people search for Donald Trump on Google (GOOG), they should be able to see a quick rundown of campaign finance facts, such as how much money his campaign has raised so far and how much money came from independent donations or super PACs.

The campaign finance information will display in the Knowledge Graph box that appears to the right of the search results, containing a collection of facts related to the search. If a user clicks on the “more campaign finance” button that appears at the bottom of the campaign finance results, he or she should be able to discover even more information, including the top industries donating to the candidate.

The company said that it partnered with the Center for Responsive Politics to deliver the finance data. TheWashington, D.C.-based nonprofit tallies campaign finance and lobbying money as well as other financials related to public policy in a public database.



With the new feature, a Google search on Donald Trump now shows that he’s raised $27.4 million so far from January 2015 to February 2016 with 93% of the money stemming from campaign donations and 7% coming from Super PACs. The results also show that Trump has contributed $17.5 million of his own money for his campaign.

Republican rival Ted Cruz, on the other hand, has raised $96.5 million, with 57% coming from campaign donations and 43% from Super PACs. Retirees are Cruz’s top donators, having contributed $4.2 million to his campaign.
