  • So far, the Republicans in my state have raised more than they spent... Democrats are the opposite. No surprise there.

    Thanks for the list, auto.

  • My Reps about half and half on Individual Contributions vs PAC contributions. What's even MORE interesting... Look at the Speaker of the House. Very LITTLE to NOT contributions from individuals.

    Or even better yet, Look at Barack Obama's  2003-2006..  And then look at his largest contributors.  Puts some things in perspective as far as his agenda, jmo... ;o)

  • Not surprising. Ours is a Rep, and his top contributors include "retired", a dental association and a school. The Dem in the next district over shows, lawyers, union, union, democrats/liberal.

  • Really grlygrlz? What pray-tell does the backing of education and CIT say about his "agenda"?
