Look Who's Not Coming to Washington: Qualified Candidates Shut Out by Big Money

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

Large contributions made by a small fraction of Americans unduly influence who runs for office and who wins elections in the United States. Without personal wealth or access to networks of wealthy contributors, many qualified and credible candidates are locked out of contention for federal office, often before voters have the opportunity to register their preferences or hear competing points of view.
