Out-of-state congressional donations on the rise

Last week in Indiana, outside money helped Richard Mourdock beat out six-term incumbent Senator Dick Lugar in the GOP primary. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chip Skambis spoke with University of South Florida political science professor Susan MacManus about how these sorts of donations will impact this coming up election season.
