Washington, D.C.-Campaign finance watchdog Public Campaign Action Fund praised the U.S. Senate confirmation on Monday of President Barack Obama's nominees to the Federal Election Commission, Republican Lee Goodman and Democrat Ann Ravel.
Statement from David Donnelly, executive director of Public Campaign Action Fund:
"Today's approval of Lee Goodman and Ann Ravel is an important step toward restoring the Federal Election Commission to a functional overseer of elections. Without regard to party affiliation, Americans everywhere are troubled by money flooding our elections.
"We deserve commissioners who can work together, in a bipartisan manner, to uphold the law. We look forward to the tenures of Mr. Goodman and Ms. Ravel, and we praise Senators of both parties who came together to approve these nominations."
