Question: How much money was spent, by your campaign, party, and outside 'independent expenditures', on trying to elect you? What interest group has invested the most in your victory, and why? What is one way you will defy a large donor in office?
Submitted from Amy of Portland, Oregon through washingtonpost.com (11/06/00)

 

Answer from George W. Bush:

We Need Accurate Disclosure In Campaign Finance Laws
Amy, according to a recent study,

it is estimated that a total of over $3 billion will be spent on this election season by all candidates, parties, and independent groups combined. I think that this shows there is a need for campaign finance reform. I believe one of the best campaign finance reforms is rapid, full disclosure of all contributors. I was the first candidate in the history of presidential campaigns to provide rapid, full disclosure of all campaign contributions on my campaign Web site.

I have also proposed a comprehensive plan for federal campaign finance reform that bans soft money contributions from corporations and labor unions, so long as that legislation includes strong "paycheck protection" language barring labor unions from taking money from mandatory workers’ dues and spending it on politics.
