The information here is valuable, but I'm struggling to read through the writing. In making comparisons, the author tries to add context to the numbers, but it only serves to muddle them. I had to read through the piece three times to follow the various parts of the lead.

The lead was lengthy, which somewhat explained the jumpiness of the piece. I thought that the numbers were trying to be put in context with the story, but to be honest I had to read several parts over to relate it all together. While I trust that the story is accurate, it made me feel that I had to do the math to truly understand the scope of the story.

Very factual and apparently fair too. But perhaps too many facts and not enough explanation or interpretation. I found myself confused about some facts, e.g., why/how counties can contribute to a gubernatorial campaign. Also, I'm still struggling to interpret these facts and understand the 'deeper story' here about why the money decreased during this election.
