USA: 2022 legislative elections are the most expensive in history

OpenSecrets, which tracks the use of money in politics and elections, said the cost of the 2022 election surpasses the previous midterms, a record so far of $13.7 billion in 2018.

The Washington-based organization said on its website that 8.9 billion of the 16.7 billion was spent on elections to renew the federal Congress, either by candidates for seats or by political committees supporting candidates.

Another $7.8 billion, according to OpenSecrets, was spent on gubernatorial elections, state legislatures and referendums held in various states on issues such as abortion or marijuana legalization.

By comparison, in 2018, $7.1 billion was spent on federal elections and $6.6 billion on statewide elections.

The United States, like most of the world, has a problem with inflation, something that Americans are not used to.

Price hikes have been one of the great topics of discussion during legislative elections which has come as a blow to Democrats.

Widespread disapproval of Democrat Joe Biden’s government in the United States appears to have not given the Republican opposition enough force to renew parliaments and officials in more than thirty states in yesterday’s midterm elections. The results remained in tense suspense this morning and expressed a certain sense of dismay for conservatives and a sense of hope for the ruling party.
