Thats an apples to oranges comparison. Orrin Hatch's total campaign contributions were only $6,118,584. So thats what it "costs" to win a senate seat in Utah. Barbra Boxer's total campaign contributions were $16,658,496. So thats what it "costs" to win a senate seat in California. So the entertainment industry paid for 4% of Boxer's campaign and paid for 3% of Hatch's campaing. To me, that would imply they value the two politicians similarly. It just happens that Hatch has a lower pricetag.
