2012 GOP contest shaping up to be cheapest race in years
Lost amid all the talk about millionaires influencing the 2012 election is a striking fact: The Republican primaries are shaping up as the cheapest and most financially depressed presidential nominating contests in years.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and the other Republicans vying to take on President Obama in November have raised and spent about half as much money as the GOP field did four years ago, campaign disclosure data show. The trend doesn't stop there: Republicans in 2000 and Democrats in 2004 posted stronger financial numbers than this year's crop of GOP challengers have.
