Coming soon: A campaign run entirely by super PACs

by - July 29, 2014

That amount paled in comparison to outside spending. As we noted on the day of the runoff, the heavy majority of money spent for McDaniel's campaign (both for him and against Cochran) came from PACs. At that point, about 83 percent of the money spent to get McDaniel elected came from outside groups, the aforementioned PACs. In the end, outside groups spent more than $7 million on McDaniel (and attacking his opponent) -- over $3 for every one of the candidate's. According to figures available on Election Day, McDaniel had the most heavily outside-driven campaign since 2010. As of the reports filed last week, he'd slipped to third.
