    If most of that money was paid right back into the coffers of other Republican run enterprises, it didn't truly 'hurt' Republicans.  It just redistributed the wealth a bit, and it'll wind up being turned around and re-donated again at some point.

      most of the money was spent on advertising TV ads in big markets - most of that money will take a long time to filter back to repub campaigns. With today's economy any money that was spent on local organizing will end up at Walmart. Also, any money they got from the poorer Repubs (and believe me there are plenty of them down here in the deep south) is money those folks can't afford to put back into another campaign.  Believe me - this has been a fairly expensive circus for them.

        and bigger and richer than they already were.  Considering no smaller businesses can afford to advertise, the money is just circulating among the 1%, just the way they want it....taking campaign contributions from the 99% and giving them to the 1%.

        It is just another  in the long, long list of ways they do it.
