Editorial: Non-Competitive District Funds Finance the Party Faithful...Money continues to flow into campaign coffers in this year’s Congressional election.

Government Reform Thought: The practice of wheeling campaign funds should be brought to an end. Wheeling is where money is transferred throughout a political party, candidate or PAC and sent to other candidates. We believe this distorts the electorial process and impedes citizens' ability to choose their elected officials. - See Year-to-date Reform Thoughts.
