Outsized Spending in Colorado

Big and Secret Money in Colorado in the 2012 Elections
Released by: CoPIRG

The 2012 elections were by far the most expensive in history thanks primarily to the tidal wave of outside, special interest money triggered by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. The federal House races in Colorado, where outside groups spent more than $5.5 million, were no exception. This report details spending among Super PAC's and dark money groups.
