ABOUT THIS BLOG
I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
· To post questions or comments;
· To follow up on class discussions;
· To post relevant news items or videos.
There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Ted Cruz's silent super PACs
As we talked about in class, candidates are not allowed to communicate with super PACs, which is not to say that Cruz's campaign has not tried to send them signals. Over the summer, his campaign posted hours of unedited, b-roll footage on Youtube that could be used by PACs for TV ads. Unfortunately for Cruz and his team, this footage has not yet been utilized.
