In the same election cycle where we're hearing of record cash being spent on South Carolina races, another race for a national office has drawn a paltry sum: The U.S. Senate seat currently held by Jim DeMint.
In fact DeMint's opponent hasn't been able to muster more than a short press release.
That's a matter noted in this Associated Press report.
Also of note is that the sure-thing race for DeMint has not only allowed him to not worry about his more controversial actions, but has also allowed him to spend his war chest in other states.
