“Huckabee: Financing Could Stymie McCain”

AP offers this report. Says Gov. Huckabee: “He wrote these laws and one of the reasons I think people need to continue this discussion and this debate is I think one of the worst things that’s ever happened to American politics is the McCain-Feingold campaign finance act…It has created more problems than it has solved and it may very well be that the law that he pushed comes back to bite him.” I do not see how McCain-Feingold, whatever one thinks of it, is directly responsible for Sen. McCain’s troubles, except that by raising the individual contribution limit from $1000 to $2000 (indexed to inflation, and currently $2300), the public financing system has become even less appealing for successful fundraisers.
