Out of state money fueling campaigns

Candidates for the Assembly and Senate are getting about seven percent of their donations, from out-of-state groups.

Mike McCabe of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign says those contributors are trying to influence politics, throughout the country.

The latest campaign finance report shows candidates, and the Legislative committees, collected about $4 million, through the first six months of the year. That's a fundraising record, for a regular election.
