Would Public Funding Push Private Money Out of Politics?

Hosted by

California voters prohibited the public financing of political campaigns in 1988. In 2000 and again in 2006, they refused to lift the ban by margins of 65 and 74 percent. But, in less that two weeks, they'll be asked to vote again, this time on a pilot program for just one statewide office. We get the details of Proposition 15 and hear a debate on the California Fair Elections Act.
