I’m looking for inputs on why today’s candidates spend so much money to be elected?
As my kids would say: I don’t get it?
Let us take for example, Meg Whitman who is running for a CA governor position and so far has spent $120Million of her own money plus $20+ million from donations. According to Times magazine she has surpassed the candidates who spent on Presidential elections! For those of you who do not her she was the CEO of ebay and made that company to what it is now with 16000 employees and a reach all over the globe. I will take one point from Meg’s website, creating Jobs for CA? The amount of money she has spent so far for this governor race, she could have started a company hired people and helped in CA unemployment. So I DON’T get it, she wants a governor job to help unemployment how?
I’m looking for everyone’s input to help me out in this dilemma.
