Law.com's Legal Intelligencer reports a "contributions spree" by the state trial lawyers association, which has funneled a hundred thousand or more apiece to two Democratic nominees, Seamus P. McCaffery and Debra Todd, and one Republican, Maureen Lally-Green. The only candidate not to receive trial lawyer money is Republican Mike Krancer, who perhaps can go it alone because he is a member of the wealthy Annenberg family.
