Big money already being spent on congressional races

As a follow up to last weekend’s piece on money in politics, Talking Points Memo has a story showing that $12.5 million in super PAC money has already been spent on 2012 congressional races.

“While super PACs have already had a major impact in the Republican presidential primary, observers expect state-level super PAC spending in Senate and House races to have an even bigger impact than it has in the presidential race. A total of 24 separate races have already received an influx of more than $100,000 in super PAC funds, money with much more potential to swing local races than it does national.”
