520 8  Individual donors play a critical role in financing 
       congressional elections, accounting for more than half of 
       all money raised in House campaigns. But significant 
       donors (defined here as those contributing more than $200)
       are the least understood participants in the system. 
       Defenders assert that contributing money to campaigns is 
       part of a broader pattern of civic involvement and is free
       speech that gives a voice to various interests. Detractors
       argue that these contributions are undemocratic, enabling 
       wealthy citizens to overwhelm the voices of the many and 
       to promote narrow business and policy interests. These 
       divergent assessments were raised in connection with the 
       Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act of 2002 and 
       continue to characterize the debate over campaign finance 
       reform. So who really contributes and why? How much and to
       how many candidates? What are the strategies used by 
       political campaigns to elicit contributions and how do the
       views of significant donors impact the campaign-finance 
       system? What do donors think about campaign-finance 
       reform? This book investigates these vital questions, 
       describing the influence of congressional financiers in 
       American politics.
