Big bucks battle as candidates fight on

-A A +A
By Ralph Damiani

Anyone who does not think that money rules our election process need go no further than this year’s election.According to the Associated Press, Barack Obama raised $7.2 million and Hillary Rodham Clinton pulled in $6.4 million in the days following Super Tuesday.This is in addition to the $32 million for Obama and $13.5 million for Clinton in January.These are stunning totals, reflecting the fact that public office today is not for the common man.As the election goes on and debate rages over who has what, indeed, whatever the current balance in the money chase, both candidates have been raising and spending incredible sums.And it is scary.Each raised some $100 million last year and sped through at least $80 million of it.Now, they have sought out and have received hundreds of millions more. And they are nowhere near done.Don’t think the Republicans are any different. While their primary is not quite as heated, still they have collected millions and will collect millions more.So, what’s the big deal?Campaign finance only refers to the means by which money is raised for election campaigns.
