Flush! Democrats Count Up How Much They Spent to Help John Walsh

Also from today’s Jolt

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 . . .
