Robert Kirkland has reported spending a total of $1,414,483 on independent campaigning through October 2010, with 100% benefiting Republican candidates. Back to group list.
Robert Kirkland has spent more than $1 million to help one candidate: his brother, Ron Kirkland, who is running for the House of Representatives in Tennessee. Robert Kirland is allowed to spend as much as he wants on campaign ads helping his brother, but federal election laws require that the money be spent without coordinating with the candidate. That means the brothers can't legally discuss the race. The spending didn't do much good – farmer Stephen Fincher won the GOP primary Aug. 5.
