MI Candidates Outspent by Dark Money

Midland Daily News: “In the race for Michigan Attorney General, incumbent Bill Schuette spent almost $1.8 million on television advertising as opposed to $358,500 for opponent Mark Totten, as reported by the Michigan Campaign Financial Network.”

“The Michigan Advocacy Trust spent an estimated $2.6 million for television ads in support of Schuette and against Totten. MAT’s founder, Richard McLellan, headed Schuette’s transition team after he won election in 2010 to the attorney general office.

“Totten’s campaign got a boost from the Michigan Democratic State Central Committee, which spent an estimated $470,000 for ads that attacked Schuette.”
