One thought on “Annual Maxwell Reception and Program in D.C. to Feature Campbell Debate on Campaign Finance

  1. With over 150 people signed up for the upcoming debate, it’s sure to be a lively discussion. Professor Grant Reeher, Campbell Institute Director, is looking forward to seeing our alumni and explained, that, “with the Campbell Debates, we’re trying to do something that needs to happen more frequently in American communities—engage in debate that is substantive, lively and also civil. Campaign finance is of perennial concern in discussions about the health of our political system—the most recent general election saw another high-water mark for spending, and a particular worry over third-party spending. It’s thus a good time to reconsider this question and I’m looking forward to taking the Campbell Debates series to D. C.”
