New Ad Campaign Launches in New York

Public Campaign Action Fund joined with Citizen Action of New York and NY Friends of Democracy in launching a new advertising campaign today in New York that includes a statewide television ad, online advertising, and direct mail targeting specific state lawmakers.

Today's New York Times story on the launch:

In an effort to build public support for reining in the flood of money in politics, advocates of overhauling New York State’s political fund-raising laws will spend over $800,000 on a new advertising campaign to begin on Monday.

The campaign marks the beginning of what is expected to be an ambitious push to persuade Albany lawmakers to confront the issue of campaign fund-raising during this year’s legislative session. Organizing for Action, the political operation that grew out of President Obama’s re-election campaign, has signed on to help with the effort.
