Republicans for Campaign-Finance Reform

Republicans for Campaign-Finance Reform: Lindsey Graham, Chris Christie, and Ted Cruz — The Atlantic.

David Graham’s excellent article explaining that campaign finance reform is not just a cause of the Left. There is now a growing shadow caucus of Republicans who, for different but parallel reasons, are tired of moneyball politics.

One cannot help but wonder about the sincerity of our elected officials about campaign finance reform. It is becoming plain that the way to bring about this change is my all but forcing it upon Congress. Why ever would an incumbent politician rock the boat on which he or she as bet their career?

One thought on “Republicans for Campaign-Finance Reform”

  1. David, Congress will never reform itself. Change will only come with an Article 5 Convention of the States imposing changed. Nearly enough States have approved the Convention to start the process. This will then set up a Constitutional crisis if the Administration and/or Congress refuses to accept the legality of the proceedings.
