"Something crazy is happening in American politics. It is compounded of competitiveness, consultant specialization, a corrupted campaign-finance system, the maturation of polling and advertising technology and a surfeit of careless contributions in a booming economy." The most expensive congressional race of 2000 is between GOP incumbent James Rogan and Democratic State Senator Adam Stiff. The big story here may not be the contributions to the campaigns, but all the money spent on professional political fundraisers. L.A. politico Big Joe Cerrell calls this particular race "the consultant full employment act."
