This year’s midterm elections are shaping up to be the costliest ever, with a projection of reaching close to $4 billion mark and in the process reaching an all-time high.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, candidates and parties alone will top $2.7 billion in spending, as outside groups will come extremely close to the $900 million mark. In 2010 and 2012, the congressional portions of the elections both respectively hit $3.6 billion in total money spent. This year, that figure is expected to surpass those by $333 million.
