Do people who have traveled more make better leaders? We'd like to examine this by building a database of the travel history of each candidate for the republication nomination for the 2016 Presidential election. This data can be visualized here:

Notes:
9
1. For the purposes of this database, any travel to a foreign country at any point in the candidate's life can be included.
10
2. Every travel instance must be documented by either a publicly available record (news story, CODEL, etc) or a first hand testimonial that we can record here.
11
3. Where possible, we've made an effort to include the date and source of funding of travel for potential further analysis.
12
4. Trips can be listed as privately funded vacation, privately funded (usually by an NGO or lobbyist) for business while in office, or government funded.

5. Fact-Checking: The Hitlist team, under the direction of Kellie Pelletier reached out to all candidates on Wednesday, Sept 9 for fact checking purposes. We asked that each campaign edit or approve the list of countries by end of day Friday, September 11 (48 hours). We also stated that IF we do not hear back from a candidate, we'll assume the list is correct.
