TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — For many voters in Tippecanoe County, campaign spending doesn't play a role in their decision.
"The direct spending amount isn't going to change who I vote for," said Tippecanoe County voter Frank Rohrer.
"I don't care how much money they spend," added Carolyn Redding.
But that doesn't mean they don't want to look at the campaign spending reports.
"I really do," said Redding. "I want to know how much money is being wasted on some of this stuff."
Redding said she bases her vote off the issues and someone's reputation.
"It's the only thing I'm really going to look at," said Redding. "I mean, I have more respect for the man who isn't going to spend anything but I mean with some people, they don't really have a name out there. So, I understand raising and spending some."
High candidate spending numbers don't bother Frank Rohrer but certain contribution numbers do.
"Anything under 500 bucks, that's fine," said Rohrer. "But if you've got the large, large sums, again, that's a thing to watch out for."
He likes to look at who is giving money to a candidate.
"I'm more concerned about the soft money, PAC donations," said Rohrer.
