Abstract:

Tobacco manufacturers and retailers gave $96 million to state-level candidates, committees and ballot measures in the 2005 and 2006 election cycles. Despite that mass of cash, concerted lobbying efforts, and well-coordinated ballot measure campaigns, tobacco interests lost many legislative battles in 2007 and five of seven ballot measure campaigns in 2006.
