Congressional races set records for spending

Washington (CNN) - There may be little drama left in the outcome, but you wouldn't know that by watching the final days of campaigning in the battle for the U.S. House.

Democratic and Republican congressional campaign committees and outside groups for both parties are ramping up spending and committing tens of millions of dollars to those races.

    I can't believe that any House Republican has the nerve to run. For two years they have not earned one dime of their lucrative government jobs. Huh. And Mittens says government does not create jobs.
