KTRH: Presidential Campaigns to Top $1 Billion (In the News)

By Nik Rajovic
While a billion dollars appears to be a sizable amount of money, David Keating at the Center for Competitive Politics insists elections cannot be bought and sold.
“All it does is buy people a voice, obviously some buy more ads than others, but in the end its going to come down to the wisdom of the voters,” says Keating.
FreedomWorks’ Noah Wall agrees.
“You can put an unlimited amount of money behind an individual candidate, but it won’t matter if you don’t have quality candidates that resonate with the  people of this country,” he says.

The Center for Competitive Politics is now the Institute for Free Speech.
