A guide to Nevada’s out-of-state political contributions


More than $4 million has flown into Nevada from out-of-state political donors to local and state candidates this election cycle. The contributions come from sources as diverse as a Georgia payday lender, a Florida medical company and a California education group, according to a Las Vegas Sun analysis of data compiled by the National Institute on Money in State Politics. The growth in out-of-state contributions reflects Nevada's position as a swing state, Sen. Harry Reid's influence and national groups' new focus on state-level politics.
