Passing a comprehensive campaign finance law would be a remarkable act of political leadership by Governor Cuomo. No state has adopted a small dollar matching system nearly as groundbreaking as what Cuomo has proposed. In addition to transforming New York’s political system, it would generate nationwide attention and could galvanize efforts to replicate the ‘New York model’ across the country and in Washington. This is a fight with big stakes for New Yorkers and for all Americans. It is the kind of fight that can define a leader. Lead on Governor.
