Presidential campaign money update

Listen 00:48:43

Guests: Byron Tau, Joshua Stewart

In this week’s edition of Ballot Talks, we get an update on the presidential campaign fundraising and spending.  As primary season is coming to an end, the candidates and parties are changing the way that they raise and allocate funds.  We’ll hear about the big donors, the super PACs, and how campaign finance rules are playing into all of this.  We’ll be joined by JOSHUA STEWART of the Sunlight Foundation, an organization that tracks political dollars, and from BYRON TAU, reporter for the Wall Street Journal.
