Money in Politics in the 2018 Midterm Elections

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 12:00pm

Do we know what is happening with money in politics this year? How much foreign spending is coming through dark money channels? In terms of online political ads, do we know how much is coming from unknown sources? How are super PACS and dark money groups shifting the balance of power with official political party fundraising operations? And are these trends filtering down to federal and state judicial elections?

Please join us for a discussion of these issues and more on October 23rd in Washington, D.C.
