Who relies most on PACs? Where does the money go? MSU reporters tackle campaign finance in MI

Apr 26, 2018



The subject of campaign finance isn't something many voters spend much time thinking about. 


But a group of MSU students has just wrapped up a class that had them exploring the money in state politics, and it was eye-opening. 

Eli Pales and Ian Hawley, journalism students at Michigan State University who worked on the Capital Expenditure Project, joined Stateside to tell us about what they learned.


Listen to the conversation above to hear what surprised them the most in the findings, what obstacles they found in gathering data, and why they think everyone should care about campaign finance.
