It's Money that Matters -- Editorial on Pearce recall complaints on campaign funds

Editorial claims that most of the money donated by constituents in the Pearce recall have gone to Lewis. However, Pearce has greatly outraised his opponent. 

Mark Hanna may have said that "there are two things that are important in politics, one is money and I can't remember what the second one is." However, there are instances of money not making in difference in a recall. According to their ballotpedia pages, the two Michigan Senators targeted in 1983 vastly outspent their opponents ($105K to $10K), but got blown out of the water.
