Professor of Government Anthony Corrado was quoted in an NBC News article on why senators hoping to run for president in 2016 are at a¬†fundraising disadvantage due to campaign finance laws. Because they are federally elected, senators can raise no more than $5,000 per individual and cannot set up their own political action committees. “[Senators] couldn’t ask for the million-dollar contribution [Republican governor Jeb] Bush is asking for his super PAC,” noted Corrado.
