O'Connor Rakes in Out-Of-State $$$

According to the Tribune-Review Pittsburgh mayoral primary candidate Bob O'Connor is not only the recipient of the most big money donations (28 contributions of $10,000 or more and 353 of at least $1,000), nearly two-thirds of the $1.2 million he has raised has come from OUTSIDE the city.

So what will these Big Spenders get for their dollars? As the Trib notes, "Political observers and O'Connor's competitors say campaign contributors will want at least access for their financial support."

The Trib further quotes opponent Bill Peduto saying the following:

"I would say that special interests have chosen their candidate in Bob O'Connor, and with it comes their agendas."
