campaign money source

Postby prew » Mon Jun 05, 2006 7:27 am

I just read this.
"Utah politicians are finding plenty of campaign money outside of the state, according to a study by the Deseret Morning News.

Out of state contributions make up three of every four dollars that have come in for the 2006 campaign so far.

Representative Rob Bishop received 75 percent of his contributions from out of state and Representative Jim Matheson, 27 percent; Senator Bob Bennett 73 percent, and Orrin Hatch 71 percent.

Politicians have said raising money in Utah is difficult because there is not a large number of wealthy people, and many seem to want to donate to charities and churches instead."

I wonder how much came from Mexico President Fox, or other influencial politicians.
Now you know who controlls the fate of Utah - outsiders, non- Utah residents.

I would be most concerned with funding from corporations and organizations.
