Video: The Week in Political Spending


Sunlight kicks off today a new Election 2012 video series called the Political Weather Report. Even if it’s dark money clouds in Ohio or a monsoon of super PAC ads in Nevada, our weather report provides you with two minutes of “sunshine.” Watch this week’s episode and get the forecast for the cities with the most political ads and the accumulation of outside money so far this month.

Tune in each week to know where political spending is, what groups are behind it, which candidates are most affected — and of course, what we don’t (but should) know.

Is there a political weather phenomena you want our campaign finance “meteorologists” to check out? Let us know in the comments below. New Political Weather Report forecasts will be online every Friday through Election Day. If you can’t wait seven days for the next episode visit Political Ad Sleuth, Ad Hawk and Follow The Unlimited Money to stay up-to-date with the latest political spending.
