269+1: Behind the Scenes of A Presidential Campaign

It Only Takes a Billion. Guest Spencer Zwick, Finance Director for Romney for President 2008, 2012. Now that public financing of presidential campaigns is a thing of the past and both the Romney and Obama campaigns raised A BILLION DOLLARS (!) in 2012, the pressure to raise money to fund campaigns is enormous. How do you start with nothing and bring in the money fast and furious? Do big donors and bundlers matter as much in an internet age? What impact do SuperPACs have on the primary and general elections? Are the Federal Election laws meaningless in light of dollars going to SuperPACs and other independent expenditure entities? Spencer is the only Republican Finance Director who has raised a billion dollars for a presidential campaign, and has a unique perspective on the current state of campaign financing.
