    NEW YORK — A pair of top Republicans acknowledged in a private meeting Saturday that the party was battling serious vulnerabilities in the midterm elections, including what one described as widespread “hate” for President Donald Trump, and raised the prospect that Sen.

    A series of developments capped by the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision have effectively crowned a bunch of billionaires and their operatives the new kings of politics. Big Money is a rollicking tour of a new political world dramatically reordered by ever-larger flows of cash. Ken Vogel has breezed into secret gatherings of big-spending Republicans and Democrats alike, from California poolsides to DC hotel bars, to brilliantly expose the way the mega-money men (and rather fewer women) are dominating the new political landscape.
