Democrats fighting to maintain control of Iowa’s Senate bankrolled the campaign of former television anchor Liz Mathis to the tune of $18,000 per day, according to campaign finance reports filed Tuesday.
Between Sept. 29 and Oct. 14, the Iowa Democratic Party invested $292,426 into Mathis' special election campaign for the open seat in Iowa's Senate District 18.
The Republican Party of Iowa, meanwhile, pumped $68,528 into the campaign of Mathis' opponent, rural Cedar Rapids businesswoman Cindy Golding.
The parties gave resources in the form of direct mail, television advertising, office space and supplies, classified as in-kind contributions in reports filed with the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board. These contributions are not included in their campaign warchests.
