Summary, etc.:
"Have you ever wondered why presidential candidates need money for their campaigns? How do they get the funds they need to succeed in politics? 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. Timelines, graphic organizers, and colorful photographs help students visualize the concepts, and sidebars provide additional information to enhance the text"-- Provided by publisher.
