Group Studies How Politicians Raise Money, How It's Used

Members of the U.S. Senate and House are sending out even more pitches for money via emails, letters and phone calls.

They have monthly fundraising goals even if they’re not up for reelection for two or three. Since the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, asking for funds has become even more prevalent.

We talked with Denise Roth Barber who studies which politicians are raising money and where it’s going as managing director of the National Institute on Money in State Politics.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
