We all know by now that a record amount of money is being spent to elect or defeat U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and challenger Thom Tillis – projected at more than $100 million. But smaller states are actually seeing a greater impact of spending per voter in their Senate races.
A new analysis by Facing South, the online magazine for the Institute for Southern Studies, puts North Carolina at $13.50 per voter.
In Arkansas, it’s $34.08, followed by Kentucky at $21.46 and Louisiana at $13.56. Georgia comes in at just $5.91 per voter.
The Institute for Southern Studies is a left-leaning research and advocacy group.
