Bradley Smith and Paul Ryan talked about the status of the Federal Election Commission, the President’s current proposal on nominations for the FEC, and

the impact of the current situation on the presidential election. They responded to

telephone calls and electronic mail. 

Last week, President Bush sought to break the deadlock over unconfirmed nominations to the Federal Election Commission. The proposal was opposed by Democrats who say the President is abandoning a reportedly non-partisan nominee in favor of a party loyalist. Currently, there are only 2 commissioners serving on the 6-member board. close
