Chart: Tea Party money

After watching Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell raise a little over five percent of her itemized donations from people who could actually vote for her – that is, from people in Delaware – we wanted to see how the rest of the Tea Party Senate slate fared. It turns out that there’s not much correlation between where a Tea Party pol got the money and what happened on Election Day. The final, final reports aren’t in yet, but the FEC documents so far show that most of them raised a ton of money out of state. Check out the expanded view of all nine.
