Candidates fill inboxes with fundraising appeals

Written by 

WASHINGTON (AP) - Campaign fundraising emails have clogged inboxes across America over the last few weeks as Monday's Federal Election Commission deadline for candidates to disclose their campaign finances approached.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio hopes your summer is off to a good start, and asks for money.

Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio says he's working on a constitutional amendment to negate a Supreme Court ruling on political activity by independent groups. And he needs money.

Candidates and independent organizations issued a series of pleading emails, tailored to the political leanings of their donor targets.

Republican fundraisers favor unflattering mentions of President Barack Obama or Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

For Democrats, it's the Koch brothers, who oversee a constellation of organizations devoted to electing Republicans and repealing the nation's health care law.
