I have always believed that every candidate running for elected office should be working with the exact same amount of funds...no hidden contributions...no possibility of special interests influencing our elections...run on your own merits. But it happens all of the time with Political Committees in spite of the fact that there are limits on individual contributions.
Take Fl Sen. Jeff Clemens, chair of Each Vote Counts PC as a prime example--As of June 30, 2017, that committee had expended $917,187.70 to influence elections. He is chair of another committee--Florida Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee that has reported $960,627.50 in contributions and $433,015.38 in expenditures since June 30, 2017.

PC's can give unlimited amounts. Let's get special interests out of our elections.
