Special interest groups, lobbyists, political action committees, campaign finance reform—if people on the news are arguing about these subjects, it’s probably an election year. Billions of dollars flow through special interest groups to fund campaigns at local, state, and national levels. Donors, corporations, and committees have the potential to greatly influence political candidates and election results, so the rules surrounding special interest groups and campaign funding should be of great concern to all citizens. Examine opposing viewpoints on some of the key issues and consider for yourself who has—and who should have—a say in the election process.
