Executive Director John Pudner featured on Fox Carolina TV

April 25, 2019

After concluding an unrelated interview with US Senator Lindsey Graham, Fox Carolina TV asked TBOR Executive Director John Pudner why it was important to bring their conservative solutions for campaign finance reform to Republican leaders in South Carolina. Pudner responded that during his time running the South Carolina call center operation for George W. Bush in 2000, he learned South Carolinians drive many conservative positions nationwide – putting Bush back on the path to the Presidency after his nomination was […]

Guest Op-ed from North Dakota Coordinator Liz Grey Bear

April 12, 2019

From the desk of Elizabeth Rich Grey Bear The ND Senate Bill 2148 hearing I attended at the North Dakota state capitol in March was striking for me. The one sentence resounding by one of the legislators speaking, I believe it was from a question posed by Josh Boschee, remains key for [TBOR] takeback.org, a conservative solutions entity for campaign finance reform. The question was asked by the former candidate, who ran against our sitting Secretary of State, Al Jaeger, […]

Pudner told various outlets that while he appreciates Cortez’ ability to defeat the establishment on the left, just as his last candidate Dave Brat did on […]

2020 Challengers Face Campaign Finance Questions

March 14, 2019

HR1 just passed the House, offering sweeping campaign finance reform and many other election changes, and while there are some very good provisions, it would also create many problems, not address some of the most pressing ones, and will not pass a Republican Senate prior to the presidential election, which turns the focus to how candidates will raise their money. The following quote sums up the basic case for eliminating Super PACs: “The current system is absurd. As a candidate […]

Executive Director John Pudner Featured in The Daily Caller

March 4, 2019

With the public waiting for the release of Robert Mueller’s report, it is worth noting the hypocrisy of many progressive campaign reform advocates who ignore much more obvious pay-for-play politics on the left, a major point when the nation debates whether Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election. Progressives lose credibility if they fail to applaud President Trump’s company for returning the $191,538 in total profits it received from foreign officials using Trump properties, or fail to criticize Hunter Biden, the son of […]

Liberal ‘dark money’ groups spent more in 2018 than conservative groups

January 23, 2019

But when it comes to the big-money world of outside spending, over which candidates have little control, it appears that liberal groups had a banner year in 2018. For the first time since the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision, which struck down campaign spending limitations for corporations and unions, liberal “dark money” groups outspent conservative groups, according to a new report from Issue One that analyzed data from the Center for Responsive Politics. Dark money groups spent $150 million in the 2018 midterms. […]

Ex-Governor’s Dark Money Group Raised Big Money

December 26, 2018

We have previously written extensively about the rise and fall of former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, particularly his use of dark money. Now, we know a little more about A New Missouri, the 501c4 organization built to promote his agenda. Tax filings show that the group raised a whopping $6.1 million from 67 donors. Two of those donors gave $1 million and all gave over the $2,600 maximum contribution. Clearly, the entity was built for the sole purpose of circumventing […]
