From the Center for Responsive Politics:" "Americans For Prosperity Reported: $67,643 Context clues: In 2010, it spent $1.3 million on federal races, according to the Center. Its state affiliates likely spent considerably more. Financial statements indicate it spent $6.5 million on "communications, ads, and media" in 2010."
