Key findings:

  • $1.5 million of the $6 million the Republican Governors Association contributed to Gov. Tom Corbett's 2010 gubernatorial campaign is untraceable, thanks to a loophole in state campaign finance laws.
  • In the third quarter of 2010 alone, the RGA topped its fundraising total for all of 2006. The $87 million it brought in during 2010 was more than it raised in the previous three years combined.
  • Five contributions totaling $3.5 million, all from people living outside of Pennsylvania, comprise more than half of the RGA’s contributions to Corbett.
