The money taps will be gushing in the final days before the 2010 election.
According to reports filed in the last week, Minnesota state political organizations have gotten more than $500,000 in since Tuesday with the bulk of it flowing to or from labor and Democratic friendly organizations.
In campaign finance documents, Unite Here's state political organization, the AFL-CIO's state fund and the teacher's union PAC have gotten $200,000, $100,000 and $160,000 respectively in the last week.
Interest groups spent less slightly money lobbying state government in 2015 than in the previous year, according to a report released Wednesday by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.
