NPR's Peter Overby reports on today's introduction of the McCain-Feingold campaign-finance reform bill for the new Congress. Arizona Republican Senator John McCain is more confident of the bill's chances for passing this go around, as he has picked up a significant supporter in Republican Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi. Some of the bill's opponents were also defeated in the November 2000 elections. The bill threatens to pose the first major confrontation to the new Bush administration.
