Campaign Finance Reform

Since losing his bid to become the Republican party candidate for president last year, Arizona Senator John McCain has pushed ahead with his cry for campaign finance reform. McCain and Democrat Russell Feingold have been promised a March Senate debate on their campaign finance reform bill by Majority Leader Trent Lott. Lott has also promised to discourage filibusters of the bill. Filibusters killed the bill in the last two congressional sessions. Robert talks with the Arizona Senator about what it will take to win the battle this time.
