Campaign Money Data

Two types of spending have transformed state Supreme Court elections in the last decade.

Candidate fundraising more than doubled,  from $83.3 million nationally in 1990-1999 to $206.9 million in 2000-2009, as Supreme Court candidates were thrust into a financial arms race.

Independent TV campaigns, waged by special interest groups and party organizations outside of the candidates' control, often have outspent the candidates on the ballot.
