Spending, Substance, and Special Interests: Assessing the Role of Super PACs and Dark Money

February 15, 2016, 7:00 PM

Free

The first of the Goldfarb Center’s Election Initiative Event series welcomes Erika Franklin Fowler, assistant professor and director of the Wesleyan Media Project, Wesleyan University. Outside-group advertising in elections skyrocketed after a series of campaign finance decisions by the Supreme Court, culminating in the seminal Citizens United case. What effect does this spending have on the electorate? This talk will discuss trends in interest-group advertising and what is known about their effect on negativity, issue dialogue, and persuasion. Sponsored by the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement.
