According to "Followthemoney.org" in 2010:
Trade unions were the second largest contributors to state candidates besides self-financing. They contributed $867,000. After them came public sector unions and lawyers' associations. Only after them came business contributors, whose contributions are often divided. The West Virginia Coal Association contributed a little over $40,000.
The top six contributors to state candidates, except for individual candidates, were labor and one lawyers' group.
Mr. Puccio. Are you sure that you want to bring up big money in West Virginia elections?
