FEC: Nearly $900 Mil to Campaigns This Cycle

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Congressional campaigns have raised over $893 million for the 2006 elections, according to the Federal Election Commission. That’s a 12 percent jump over the 03-04 election cycle.

Political Action Committees contributed $232 million to House and Senate campaigns — a 23 percent increase over the previous cycle, the FEC said. At least they’re not spending it on lottery tickets.
