  1. Why does Murphy have so much if he ran unopposed he didn’t need that money but still raised the second most

  2. @ksdf if you think angling like he was going to run for senate isn’t the reason he has so much more money than the other reps, then you don’t really understand how campaign finance works. I’d bet he would agree with me on that part of my statement if you asked him.

  3. Absolutely brilliant showing a current federal map with old names. Hey Paul, you wanna quit? :-/

  4. Positioning himself as a contender for the senate seems to have aided Meehan in growing his war chest. The 7th district is a disgrace, and is the poster child for the the Republican party’s anti-democratic(not just anti-Democratic) tendencies. Pat Meehan is the swamp.

  5. piece of advice to the left – maybe you should do some research on the members ya’ll troll before calling them crooks or rich SOBs or sorry ‘privileged’

  6. There’s no ffff way Boyle and Brady have the exact same amount. Add another 500 k to Nradys. ???!
