campaign finance reform
The Supreme Court's ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission has opened the door for wealthy donors to spend even more on political campaigns. It will also require interested citizens to learn some new terminology.
Liuba Gretchen Shirley explains why campaign finance reform would allow for more regular people to run for office.
We will be studying what happened for years to come, but let's start with the obvious: Trump may be a (self-described) billionaire, but he won despite having less campaign money -- a lot less.
A similar initiative in Washington state didn't go through, however.
Public financing elections can now come to California.
