SEIU prez: Union spent $60.7 million to elect Obama

In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Service Employee International Union President Andy Stern had this to say about last year's presidential election:

We spent a fortune to elect Barack Obama — $60.7 million to be exact — and we're proud of it.

Are there other organizations--on the left or the right--that spend that kind of money on a presidential race?
