Mitch McConnell and his crony, big donor buddies are estimated to have spent $10 million in Alabama (I have also heard $30M) because they preferred one Republican candidate over another Republican candidate. They lost their bet, and squandered millions of dollars that would have been helpful in next year’s Senate races.
