This book focuses on how and where presidential candidates obtain the money to help them run for the country's highest office. Readers will learn about the history of campaign fund-raising and discover how candidates in different time periods approached it. They'll also learn about historical events, including a recent Supreme Court decision, that changed the nature of fund-raising.
