I was watching Face the Nation yesterday and amazed at how much money is being spent on this election. Here’s part of the show transcript:
“BOB SCHIEFFER: Today on FACE THE NATION, itâ€™s all about the money, or is it? Whatever itâ€™s about, the midterm election will be the most expensive ever. How expensive–3.7 billion.
Thatâ€™s billion with a B. With nine days to go, both sides have their big guns on the stump.”
$3.7 billion. No tally yet on the cost of the North Dakota races. Do you think it’s necessary for elections to costÂ this much?
