House Watch: Who’s dropping money/people into the districts?

In addition to the political contributions that candidates receive, it’s usually instructive to look at where outside groups are allocating resources for House campaigns. The examples below were all reported to the Federal Election Commission in the last day or two.

I’m a bit puzzled by the unionists sent to Arkansas-2 for a race not widely believed to be competitive. On the other hand, the 21-man army in Ohio-13 suggests someone is very afraid for Rep. Betty Sutton, D.

Dr. Nan Hayworth, the Republican who leads Rep. John Hall, D-N.Y., in at least one poll, is getting a six-figure boost from her professional colleagues.

OH-1

  • Working America pays 17 campaign workers to support Rep. Steve Driehaus, D.

OH-13

  • Working America pays 21 campaign workers to support Rep. Betty Sutton, D.

NM-1:

  • Working America pays 11 campaign workers to support Rep. Martin Heinrich, D.

NY-19:

  • American Academy of Opthamology Inc. Political Action Committee spends $142,000 on cable television ads to support Nan Hayworth, R.

MI-7:

  • Working America pays 9 campaign workers to support Rep. Mark Schauer, D.

AR-2:

  • Working America pays 10 campaign workers to support Joyce Ann Elliott, D.
