Pudner Talks Senate Races and Campaign Finance in NewsMax

One of the few issues that could unite people across the Rural vs. Urban and Coasts vs. Middle America chasm is money-in-politics reform, where we helped achieve a great referendum victory for campaign finance reform and an ethics board in North Dakota the same day the state also handed the GOP their most lopsided Senate flip.
