CongressDaily (sub. req.) crunches the numbers and finds that the Citizens United Political Victory Fund has given almost $200,000 to candidates in 2010 races, all to Republicans.

The PAC, which is behind the Citizens United Supreme Court decision that opened the door for campaign contributions directly from corporations, donated thousands to conservative and tea party-type candidates.Citizens United donated $71,000 to Senate candidates and $128,500 to those on the House side. That includes $10,000 to J.D. Hayworth, who’s challenging Sen. John McCain from the right, another $10,000 to Rep. Mark Kirk, who’s running for Senate in Illinois and $5,000 to ultra-conservative Sharron Angle in Nevada.
