Outside Groups in 2010

The Washington Post reports on outside spending on 2010:
The biggest war chests appear to be amassed on the right, where groups hope to take advantage of widespread unhappiness over the recession, stimulus spending and other fiscal issues to propel Republicans into office. About two-thirds of the expected group expenditures compiled by The Washington Post will come from conservative-leaning groups.

For example, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and American Crossroads, a new GOP-focused group backed by former White House political director Karl Rove, each plan to spend at least $50 million this year on election-related efforts, officials said. Other big spenders on the right include the American Action Network ($25 million), the Club for Growth ($24 million) and FreedomWorks ($10 million).

The CRP's page on 527 groups is here. As of the last report, American Crossroads had raised only only $250,000.
