Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, said the DISCLOSE Act’s backers will look for opportunities to work with Republicans, such as Murkowski, above, who have voiced support for disclosure in a bid to come up with a new version of the legislation that draws bipartisan support.

“That seems to me like a big black eye to democracy, something [for] people left, right and center to organize around, that groups could support for reform,” Krumholz said. “So it seems to me that there is a ripe opportunity for common ground across the ideological spectrum for reform.”

Krumholz said the CRP will not tally final totals until year-end reporting deadlines have passed but expects its $6 billion spending projection for the 2012 races to hold.
