Monday, November 3, 2014

On Tuesday, the most expensive political race in history will end. Election Day will stop the flow of cash into the campaigns of Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis but cash will continue to flow to the winner and all of the winners around the country as the influence of money on politics grows. And that is the subject of an award-winning book by frequent contributor Dr. Eric Heberlig of UNC Charlotte.
