The San Francisco Chronicle covers the visit of former Sens. Bill Bradley and Alan Simpson who are traveling the country drumming up support for public financing of congressional and presidential races and giving a candidates' perspective on the endless money chase that is the modern campaign.
Bradley and Simpson are involved with an organization we consider an ally, Americans for Campaign Reform, and have done their part to tell the truth about fundraising interfering with the work of government. Their bipartisan effort on this front is a welcome companion to that of Sens. Richard Durbin and Arlen Specter leading up the fight in the Senate to pass the Fair Elections Now Act and make full public financing a reality for congressional races.
