Tammy vs Tommy Senate race sets new spending record

Postby Beaver » Sat Oct 27, 2012 9:26 pm

WI must be the most important State because more money is being wasted here on political ads then has ever been wasted before. Disgusting. Nice job by Bill Lueders exposing this.

Baldwin-Thompson Senate race sets new spending record, led by outside groups
Majority of money spent on negative messaging

"The battle between Republican Tommy Thompson and Democrat Tammy Baldwin is emerging as one of the most important -- and costly -- races in the country. It has drawn tens of millions of dollars from outside groups who see it as a race that could go either way and possibly determine which party controls the U.S. Senate."

It has been difficult to listen to all airwave pollution and to throw out so much political junk mail. But all of this puts a smile on the faces of printers, TV stations, the Post Office and others who benefit from all of this "outside money". It's not disgusting to these people. A heapin', stinkin' load of crap has brought a ton of money to Wisconsin. And in two weeks the teat drys up, so quit your pouting. I don't care how they "waste" their money, as long as they "waste" it here. And I'm guessing the fine folks on both sides think controling the Senate is imprtant.
