Republican Candidates Set Fast Pace for Spending


Recommended Posts


Mr. Romney used his war chest to spend nearly $2 million on television advertising in selected states, much more than any of his primary rivals, to introduce himself to voters on his own terms before others could characterize him. He also spent heavily on fund-raising consultants in 16 states, for example paying more than $200,000 to buy a list of potential donors from a Virginia direct mail firm.

Mr. Giuliani

I find it too bad that the American public will vote for whoever dishes out more money during their campaign. It is no different in Canada, I must admit, but I wonder if it is different in some other countries, where people would actually not be influenced by massive amounts of publicity. I also wish that the television debates could be radio only, cause imo the faces of the candidates are of minor importance to whom most represents one's values. I could continue ranting a bit, but I should be studying.
