Outside Influence: Out-of-state money in the 2016 senate elections
This report paints a clear picture of where money is coming from in senate races from New Hampshire to Nevada and raises serious questions about to whom elected officials are accountable: voters or wealthy special interests from out-of-state?
Report findings show that 77 percent of the disclosed contributions in this year’s 34 senate races came from donors who live outside the state they are targeting. In the case of swing state races and in the case of spending by external groups in particular, this analysis shows that out-of-state money makes up a larger share of campaign spending.
