Re: How much money spent campaigning???

There are roughly 23 million people in Australia. There are roughly 39 million in California. To spend the equivalent amount of money per resident Whitman would have had to spend $76 million. Whitman spend twice the amount of money per resident and didn't get anywhere. If there's a bright indicator in American politics it's that money doesn't matter that much. You have to spend a lot of money to be heard but it won't buy you the election.
