3. A site that shows where donations to Bailey, McDowell and Benishek come from

http://www.fec.gov/disclosurehs/HSCandList.do

Over half the money Repub Benishek has received is from PACs. A third of the money Democrat candidate McDowell has gotten is from PACs. Bailey's percentage from such sources is zilch.

At McDowell's website, there's an article touting how his campaign has raised over $600,000.00 from over 1600 "grassroots" supporters. That would be roughly $400.00 per person but of course a sizeable percentage of that $600k comes from PACs headquartered in the D.C. area.

Take away the PAC money and Bailey's on a much more level playing field.
