Campaign committees can also give donations to each other. When a campaign committee registers as playing a role for more than one proposition, it is not possible to say with precision how much of the money it raised was spent for or against any particular one of the propositions it registers as playing a role in. This also results in a situation where adding up the contribution totals proposition-by-proposition would result in an overall total that is greater than the actual overall total. Maplight, a campaign finance watchdog, adjusted for this difficulty and reached an overall campaign finance total for the November 2 propositions of $147 million.
