(Newser) – Fundraising records have been shattered as House and Senate candidates head toward the finish line, a Washington Post analysis of campaign finance data finds. House and Senate candidates have raised over $1.5 billion and total spending is on course to top $2 billion as hopefuls dig deep into their war chests and, in many races, their own pockets. The total works out to more than $4 million for every congressional seat up for grabs.
All in the name of finding the least objectionable sleazoid conartist??? Good thing there are not more deserving things to do with all that money – $2B House, Senate Races Smash Fundraising Record – Spending set to top $4M for each congressional seat
