    Oh no, some rich people are Democrats. How awful! And how terrible of Hillary to actually support other Democrats running for office. A travesty!

      I am saddened and embarrassed to see you remark in such a fashion. This, the woman who fought against the Koch Brothers taking over the state, using Republicans to do their bidding. When Bernie Sanders takes all counties except one and yet our Dem tell us to sit down and shut up because they are now going to make the decisions for us, we should be very concerned. Especially since this Supreme Court ruling that went along with Citizens United has allowed legal money laundering like this and you support it.

      This is the same kind of usurping of our democracy that you and I fought together to prevent. How foolish your comment looks. Sad for you.

      And apparently you did not read the article. There is no support for the state Dems. They take all the money. Oh wait, the billionaires left us $278.19. Right.
