Buying a Governor's Seat

In 2010 the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision let loose the floodgates of outside money into our elections.  The special interest money flowing into the 2014 Connecticut election cycle threatens to undo the enormous amount of good our campaign finance laws have done in recent years.  PACs and corporations are spending millions to help their chosen candidate win the race for Governor in Connecticut.  How much are they spending?
