PROFILE OF A POLITICIAN; Jeff Merkley (D-OR)

Jeff Merkley (D-OR)


If you follow the money you will discover where loyalties lie.  This is an example of a politician who garners support from constituents, not outside funders and with a significant amount coming from small individual contributions.

More of a politician than a political whore. 

Cycle Source of Funds, 2009-2014, Campaign Cmte only
