    Dumbocrats try to fix everything with money, which just all goes wasted. The majority of the voters were fed up with these liars and the Republicans shouldn't have had to spend a dime on campaigning in order to win. The record of the Left spoke for itself.

    Wait, this can't be. Libs swear Republicans buy elections and is the only way Repubs can ever win. It simply cannot be true that Dems outspent Repubs. If true, this totally destroys one of the lib Dems' most sacred (false) narratives. The two things that scare libs most are facts and a real job. Bless their hearts.

    This article is very misleading because it does not take into consideration the money spent by the Kochs and other PACs.

    PopMom is misleading because her campaign money hysteria only extends to conservatives.

    "This article is very misleading because it does not take into consideration the money spent by the Kochs and other PACs."
    Perhaps not, but I recall the ADG article which noted that anti-Cotton money flowed at a higher rate than anti-Pryor money. As an example, of course.
