Center for Competitive Politics founder Bradley Smith has appeared in a number of media outlets recently, offering quotes and nuggets of campaign finance wisdom in outlets as diverse as Bloomberg News and The Huffington Post. Over the past several weeks he has been called to express his opinions on everything from what it’s like to promote a side of the campaign finance issue that has been historically underrepresented, to his thoughts on a recent effort by the Committee on Economic Development to guilt businesses into ceasing campaign contributions. Never afraid to go to bat for his opinions, Smith continues to make himself available to all sides of the media in an effort to inform the public of the benefit of free speech in elections.
