National push targets Cuomo on NYS campaign finance reform
[The Republic] A coalition of advocacy groups will aim 1 million emails at New Yorkers on Wednesday, urging them to prod Gov. Andrew Cuomo to pursue public financing of political campaigns.
The effort that national groups including MoveOn.org, Progressives United and Demos are launching Wednesday is meant to push the Democrat as he considers a campaign finance reform bill he said he’ll present to the state Legislature.
“I think there’s a tremendous appetite nationally for change in the money-and-politics system,” said Nick Nyhart, president of the Washington, D.C.-based Public Campaign, a nonprofit group that is organizing the campaign. He said Cuomo support is key in New York and nationally.
