Incumbents always have the advantage of the existing budget to buy votes. This is why all attempts to reign in campaign financing and campaign spending (in addition to being an unconstitutional violation of property and speech rights) help incumbents and hurt challengers.

This article highlights a SuperPAC that has as its mission to help challengers oust incumbents. This is great news.

I almost titled this post “We can help ourselves” because it is a good example of individuals doing what needs to be done without resorting to legislation. But I usually reserve that headline for posts about charity. Regardless, this is clearly a great example of non-legislative pro-action. Kudos to this SuperPAC.
