State Senate Money Numbers

Like I did for the State House, I’ve created a campaign disclosure summary document for the contested Senate races. Click here to see the Google Doc.

    Like I said before. This is just an example of how the money flows.
    Nothing again Pearson. I like him as a person, this is just an example. He is not my Senator. I have Mullis.
    Look at the district map here:
    http://www.legis.ga.gov/legis/2009_10/senate/districts.htm
    and then the donations here:

    Incumbants loose touch with the district based on the money coming in. The squeeky wheel gets the grease. Once you get in ATL to long all the lobbyist squeek. You are worried about re-election and money is coming in from the squeeky wheel lobbyist in ATL. Plus you don’t get much money from your district, I mean real money. It really comes in on off election years when no-one is paying attention.

    Just as a reminder in Senate 56, Rep. Wendell Willard, with the change of leadership, had decided in December to stay in the House. Speaker Designate (if that’s the proper term) David Ralston helped Wendell with a fundraiser on Monday for his House account.

      Interesting, I didn’t know that. I wonder if McGinity might look at that Senate seat, now that he has an almost insurmountable battle for SOS.

    Meanwhile, state revenues are down 5.8% YOY, with sales taxes down 20%.

    Meanwhile all manner of state and local candidates run on a federal tax reform that absolutely kills state and local revenues while stiffly driving up state and local costs.

    Brilliant.
