Former US Senators Saxby Chambliss and Wyche Fowler agree there’s too much money in politics in our third episode of Across the Aisle.
“State legislatures that draw the districts tend to draw them for incumbents … and sometimes those state legislators are able to … for their own personal benefit because they want to run for Congress,” Chambliss said.
“If you’re in the House you never stop raising money … and that’s not the way it ought to be. You have these outside groups that exert lots of influence simply because they have money. Money has gotten way too important in political campaigns.”
