Collins Receives Twice as Much from Financial Sector as Allen

The Press Herald has an interesting article by Dieter Bradbury on political contributions from the financial sector with the headline "Foes Collins, Allen take in more than $1.5 million from financial sector". The piece implies that these contributions might affect their actions regarding the economic crisis. What you don't learn until the 27th paragraph of the piece is that Collins raked in 2/3rds of that amount.

In related news, if I had to pick one reason why Susan Collins is winning, I might go with her excellent constituency work.
