Political Matrix
E: -6.45, S: -6.96

Money in politics works... but only to an extent. If a candidate has already spent so much, then it doesn't matter how much more money they spend: for example, Jon Corzine spent $50 Million for a Senate seat he only won by 3 (and outspent his Republican by a margin of, I think, 10-1). On the other side:  If a candidate is so doomed, money can't fix that. Blanche Lincoln outspent whoever the Republican was by 9-1, and lost by one of the largest margins an incumbent has ever lost by.

However, no candidate is doomed or has already spent beyond a crazy amaount here, so money is fairplay, but that doesn't necessairly mean the candidate with the most money will win.
