California leads all the states in outside spending during and election.

California is key to Congress wars

California, once an afterthought in the battle for control of Congress, has become a top target for deep-pocketed political action ?committees.

Since an independent panel recast California’s political boundaries two years ago, the state’s newly drawn congressional districts are now the most competitive House landscapes in the nation and are attracting money at an unprecedented clip — more than $45 million so far.

With less than a week until Election Day, that spending is surging as more than 80 outside groups and independent super-PACs seek to sway the makeup of the nation’s largest congressional delegation.

Even in an age of freewheeling political spending blessed by the U.S. Supreme Court, no other state has come close to California in the sheer volume of outside spending.
