Contributions flowing from out of state

Oklahoma City_Campaign finance reports indicate hundreds of thousands of dollars in out-of-state money is flowing into state legislative contests in Oklahoma.

State affiliates of the Democratic legislative campaign committee and the Republican state leadership committee are funneling money to these races. Both are tax-exempt political groups that can raise unlimited funds for political activity under federal tax laws.

Republicans are spending the money on last-minute TV and radio ads, and mailings on behalf of state senate candidates in competitive races. That includes more than $380,000 this month on behalf of senate candidates in Tulsa, Stillwater, Norman, Lawton and eastern Oklahoma.

Its Democratic counterpart has spent more than $500,000 since August on campaign research, polling and TV advertising.
