A list of political domain names for blocking?

Do you know of a master list of active political domain names being used in the current American election? I need it so I can block all ads pointing to those sites.

I run a website that uses AdSense to display others' ads to visitors, and although we have turned off the political ads (meaning that our visitors should not see any political ads), and all other sensitive ads, some visitors are still seeing them. And when those ads don't match the visitors' politics, the visitors start steaming at the ears and blaming us.
So, I'm hoping that someone already has a magical list of all the domain names being used in the current American political campaigns. Maybe you built one yourself. Maybe your Google-fu is better than mine. Or maybe you know of some place I can scrape a list.
It's surely a game of Whac-a-Mole, but if I can't find a way to block whatever Google can't manage to do, then I'm going to have to remove the ads and lose the revenue for the next week.
