Campaign cash and appointments

The Houston Chronicle has put together an analysis that shows that Perry’s appointees accounted for about $4.9 million in campaign contributions to his campaign. The story points out that only about one in ten donors have given money to Perry. However, university regents account for about half of the donor-appointees.

Perry certainly would not be the first governor to lean toward donors. However, it’s always good to see the issue raised. I’d love to see details of the study.
