Webb Campaign Press Release - Jim Webb: Money 'Screwing Up' Political Process
RICHMOND — Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb said Friday that Super PAC money is "really screwing up the political process" and that it affects his campaign's ability to get his message out.
"The challenge that we have right now in the current political environment, money dominates the process like it never has before," said Webb, who served as a U.S. senator from Virginia from 2007 until 2013, on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
Webb said he was concerned with the buying power of Super PACs that are funneling most of the $388 million spent on the election this year into the race. Unlike the candidates, PACs are allowed to accept unlimited contributions in support of candidates from almost any source.
