Money rules politics. And it gets worse every election cycle. This is why we have such terrible government. Voter’s desires mean little in a system such as this:
The 2020 Senate races brought home trophy after trophy in the arena of campaign finance. When considering combined candidate and outside spending, this year’s elections gave rise to nine of the 10 most expensive Senate races ever.
Combined, these nine races cost close to $2.1 billion, contributing to the estimated record $14 billion spent during the 2020 election cycle. The Carolinas take the cake as the two most expensive Senate races ever. North Carolina came in at No. 1 with a total cost of $298.9 million. The 2020 South Carolina Senate race totaled $276.9 million.
