State Elections & National Funding

This is a fascinating NYTimes article detailing how Republican and Democratic lobbying firms are raising money not just for state campaigns, but also for state ones with the purpose of getting legislation through that favors their side.  Here are several examples of partisan legislation and what states it has gotten through.

Part of the plan for the Republicans was developed by Ed Gillespie who has decided to risk his reputation and tackle one of my sitting senators, Mark Warner (D) who has a 61% approval rating.  Following his own strategy he is planning to center his campaign around ObamaCare.
