Ray La Raja Quoted in Bloomberg Business Week Article on Public Campaign Funding

Ray La Raja, Professor of Political Science, is quoted in an article about public campaign funding for U.S. elections. In reference to candidates who turn down public financing in order to fundraise privately, La Raja said, “The programs will say, ‘Take these public funds, but don’t spend over this amount or else you’re not eligible to take the public money,’ which is an invitation for all these outside groups to spend tons of money.” (Bloomberg, 9/16/21)
