Did the SuperPacs play as much of a role as we thought they would?

I saw a headline regarding Karl Rove and how he has a lot of billionaires asking serious questions. That's a tough spot to be in.

Are there any final numbers on how much was spent be each side?

I would say the right wing superpacs don't think they got a very good return on their investment. They ran shitloads of ads in the battleground states and it was still an electoral curbstomping.

In my district, a few superpacs poured millions into Joe Walsh's campaign and they might as well have set the cash on fire. He had no shot at winning or even being competitve given 1) he is the world's biggest douchebag and 2) the district was redrawn to have a decided Dem lean.
