iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created January 18, 2012 by
Super PACs are stealing the show this election season with their ability to draw unlimited campaign contributions from corporations, labor unions, and wealthy individual donors. As of January 17, super PACs have already spent $26 million in this election cycle, according to federal campaign records, well on their way to surpass the $390 million spent in the 2010 midterm elections.
Do the little people’s donations still matter? What inspired you to chip in? Tell us about the issues that tug at you, and how you hope your money will be used in a 30 second video. You could be featured in CNN's special coverage of the high cost of political campaigns in the U.S., during the week of January 23.
