Your Call: Who is funding the presidential candidates?

Jul 25, 2016

On the July 25th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about corporations funding the Democratic and Republican Parties.

According to Open Secrets, pro-Hillary Clinton PACs have raised over $350 million, some of that money comes from corporations and nonprofits that aren't required to reveal their names.  Who are the Democrats’ corporate friends? And how do they compare to the corporations that back the Republicans?  Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
