About This Video
Run time: 50 minutes
The panelists discussed the role of their independent groups in the 2004 presidential campaign. These groups are not new, but they (including tax statute number 527 groups) spent an unprecedented amount of money on campaign advertising. The first panel represented Republican groups and the second panel represented Democrats. Examples of ads were shown and the panelists discussed their strategies and experiences. After their presentations the panelists answered audience members' questions. Mr. Steven Crowley participated by telephone.
