Iowa Progress: Loebsack Leading Congress...In Money From PACs
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Dave Loebsack, Iowa's newly elected Congressman from the 2nd District has been raising money from Political Action Committees at an incredible rate since Election Day. Between Election Day and the end of the year, Loebsack raised $71,000, most of which came from PACs. In contrast, over the last five weeks of the election, Loebsack raised less than $40,000 from PACs. All the money that Loebsack recieved from PACs made him the leading fundraiser among all House freshmen. ... It certainly looks like things are going to be a lot more expensive in 2008.
