State campaign money

The National Institute on Money in State Politics today issued a report on the soft-money raised by state political parties (or transferred from national party groups) in 13 states.

An AP story on the report says,

Despite federal controls on so-called soft money, major donors are sending large amounts of money to state campaigns without restrictions and campaign contributions are being shuffled back and forth across the country, a study released Tuesday shows.

The six-year, 13-state study, produced by the Institute on Money in State Politics, a Montana-based campaign watchdog organization, followed the path of soft money between the state and national Republican and Democratic committees.
