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.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
