Sen. Cory Booker pledged Tuesday not to take to any extent further money from corporate political action committees.
“I heard from constituents today asking about corporate PAC contributions. I’m joining several of my colleagues & no longer accepting these contributions. Our campaign finance system is broken. I thank @StopBigMoney for their work—it’s time to pass campaign finance reform,” Mr. Booker, New Jersey Democrat, tweeted.
Political action committees — regularly referred to as PACs — are restricted in how a lot they are able to give a contribution to a selected candidate or celebration, however they're limitless in what they are able to spend aside from a candidate or celebration.
I heard from constituents as of late asking about corporate PAC contributions. I’m becoming a member of a number of of my colleagues & now not accepting those contributions. Our marketing campaign finance gadget is damaged. I thank @StopBigMoney for his or her paintings—it’s time to go marketing campaign finance reform.
