    I was reacting to the comments re salaries.

    Either one goes into electoral processes very wealthy or very connected (often the same thing) or one goes in as a serious underdog. The ones ready to support the interests of those in the wealthy/connected camp then are easier able to raise significant funds.  E.g., if not already super-wealthy or ready to sell out, then one is an underdog in the U.S. electoral system -- whether running for local sheriff or POTUS.
