These are the top 10 contributions Chip Cravaack and Rick Nolan have received from congressional leadership PACs, those established by members of Congress to help others around the country. Cravaack and Nolan have raised more from fellow members of Congress than anyone else in Minnesota this fall.

Franken is the biggest donor among Minnesota Democrats, having given around $350,000 to candidates this cycle. Spokesman Ed Shelleby said Franken uses his Midwest Values PAC to “help Democratic candidates who he believes will enact good policy that improves the lives of working families in Minnesota and around the country. When choosing whom to support, Sen. Franken looks at each candidate and each race on a case-by-case basis.”

    money and corruption

    There is plenty written about how money is corrupting politics. Here is another interesting stat on money and politics:
    As a sign of the high stakes over control of the Senate, a report out this week by the Sunlight Foundation says that outside groups spent a whopping $190 million on Senate races as of October 23.
    I think the days of 1 person, 1 vote are now a myth. It is how much money must be spent to buy an election.
