Neil Reiff and David Mitrani were quoted in an article this week in The Guardian regarding campaign finance and the role of money in American elections:

“A lot of these organizations have overspun. Mayber Super Pac money can buy you name recognition but it can’t buy you legitimacy with name recognition. Look at Jeb Bush,” said Neil Reiff.

David Mitrani agreed that Super Pacs led to “a decentralization of our political system. The power passed to Super Pacs from the political parties. Now fringe groups on both sides of the aisle that can raise money from larger or grassroots donors have the same or a bigger voice than the parties. That really hurt the state parties which find themselves in dire financial straits.”
