HGov: Political Campaigns


Big Sky Big Money
This documentary, Big Sky Big Money, takes place in Helena, Montana and digs deep into the funding of the 2012 political campaigns to find out just who funds all these politicians and if they really are the ones controlling who wins the elections. Montana spent the most amount of money in supporting candidates in a political race for the Senate throughout America. The last campaign was saturated with political attack ads. $6.8 million funded this election. 68% of the funding came from outside groups and these groups seem to be controlling who wins because of their tremendous support.


Homework:
8.2 Electoral & Party Systems (read pp.248-263)
