Eight Forty-Eight

Presidential Money Race

The Democratic presidential candidates are so close that even military expansion on Guam is becoming a hot political issue. The tiny Pacific Island territory holds its caucus this Saturday. Of course the next major contests come a touch later – one week from today, Indiana and North Carolina will weigh in. Analysts say Indiana is the real contested terrain – drawing the bulk of attention, and a boat-load of campaign cash. Spending on ads there has already reached into the millions – according to Cindi Canary. She's director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, and she's been joining us periodically with analysis of campaign money. She's here now to talk about who's spending what in the Hoosier state.

Music Button: Tony Bennett, “With Plenty of Money and You”, from the CD Wild Cool & Swingin' Too! (Capitol records)
