Looks like Democrats wasted a bunch of money on the aborted campaign of appointed Sen. John Walsh (D., Mont): “Senate Democrats huddled to support Walsh, making leadership PACs the fresh appointee’s second largest contributing industry. 42 Senators — four out of five of Democrats in the upper chamber — gave to Walsh through their leadership PACs, for a total of $246,000 . . . Meanwhile, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spent close to $18,000 in outside expenditures in the race, one of its nine targets this cycle. The largest outside spender in the election was the progressive veterans’ group VoteVets.org, which spent close to $300,000 backing Walsh.”
