    DCCyclone, TofG out of state as well.

    The nature of the beast is that most out-of-staters have a vested interest in the outcome of ANY Senate race. I'd be very surprised if for example most of Sen. Manchin's (or his opponent's) fundraised money came from inside of West Virginia.

    Occupy Wall Street AND K Street!!!!

    •  Yeah, perhaps CA and NY are the only states (1+ / 0-)

      Where candidates get a significant portion of their funds in-state, and even then its probably candidate dependent.

      Still, Brown has $10M or somethign CoH i think so he'll be fine with just moderate spending.  

      Its just that he'll lose, and no amount of money cans top that.

      •  Florida and Texas as well (0+ / 0-)

        But outside of the really big states with rich people, you are going to get a lot of outside donations.

        •  Is it true in FL (0+ / 0-)

          I've never looked into it, but I'd think not.  And I don't even know why I'd think that.  With the Dem state party not being great I'd assume a rather large amount for Dem candidates comes from otuside FL.  

          And for Repub candidates, what is the Republican money base in FL (In TX its oil/energy, NY its Wall St, etc).  But what FL industry heavily supports the GOP?

          It's be an interesting analysis to see if FL really does fall in line with these other 3.

      •  I really wish people would stop saying that :( (2+ / 0-)

        Warren's victory is NOT a done deal, and the more that people say that (especially people who aren't state residents) the more nervous I get.  Brown is a seasoned campaigner who was a long-time state rep before he beat Coakley.  He has a lot of money, and is inexplicably popular.  Warren, for all her virtues, has never run for office before, and she still isn't nearly as well known as people here think she is.  

        I agree that she's got an excellent chance to beat Brown, and I would love it if she did.  But a lot can happen in a year, and acting like her victory is assured is way premature.
