Campaign Finance

The legislature failed to pass legislation to put limitations on campaign contributions from individuals this spring, so for this campaign cycle there will be no limits to the amount of money that an individual can give to an individual candidate.  This is because the courts struck down our former $500 limit, and the Governor failed to appeal the ruling.  I support reasonable campaign contribution limits as I don’t want to see the wealthy (both in and out of state) to have undue influence over our candidates, and elected officials.  This will breed policies that benefit the wealthy.  Do you think the super wealthy who can pour tens of thousands of dollars, or millions of dollars, into a campaign care about our Alaskan issues?
