Surprise! GOP 527's out spent their counterparts in the end.

30 million dollars in the final three weeks on TV ads, damn! What ads were remembered the most......the Swift Boat and the Progress for America ads. I think most of this stuff we already knew, but one statistic by the Campaign Finance Institute disturbed me the most:

In Senate contests, the Campaign Finance Institute found that fundraising by incumbents in close races shot up 73 percent, from $4.5 million in 2002 to $7.8 million this year, while challenger fundraising in those contests grew 29 percent, from $2.8 million to $3.6 million.

Campaign finance reform, where are you?
