A UCLA linebacker shells out $11,100 to help a Republican senator in Pennsylvania. A businessman from the small Northern California town of Eureka spends $515,000 to defeat a powerful Democrat in South Dakota. A Silicon Valley couple funnels cash to elect Democratic secretaries of state in swing states like Ohio who will oversee voting in the coming presidential election.
