Groups Release Candidate Briefing Book on Money in Politics

Washington, DC—Public Campaign Action Fund and Friends of Democracy released a briefing book today for Congressional candidates, giving them the tools necessary to run for office on a platform of creating a democracy that works for everyday people.

Poll after poll shows voters are fed up with Washington and want major changes to the way our elections work. This briefing book, available online at campaignmoney.org/briefingbook, provides suggestions on policy solutions, tips for reaching voters on money in politics, messaging, campaign finance facts, and suggested responses for dealing with money in politics issues that could come up in a campaign.

“Americans want their elected officials to tell them exactly how they plan to make our government of, by and for the people—not bought and paid for by special interests,” said David Donnelly, executive director of Public Campaign Action Fund. “There are real opportunities for candidates on both sides of the aisle to lead on this issue and we’ve provided the resources necessary to do just that.”
