Clearly, there's gold in them thar River Hills:
Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) raised $30,000 this year from a single contributor.Republicans received unlimited donations while writing budget
That would be the budget that rewards the rich and burdens the poor.
Meanwhile Democrats have to work hundreds of contributors to equal what two or three wealthy individuals donate to Republican candidates.
Tells you something, don't it. Compare Alberta Darling's few big money contributors with failed Republican candidate for Senate John Nygren's ability to round up a grand total of 398 signatures, two short of what's required. John Nygren's failure paved the way for Republican David VanderLeest, who seems a wee bit off-kilter to say the least, to ensure the continuing incumbency of Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen.
