Steven Law talked about American Crossroads spending strategy in the 2012 campaign cycle. and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Topics included the amount the group has spent and raised thus far, some of the House and Senate races being targeted, negative campaign ads, and some of the issues important to the group, such as tax policy, the federal budget, and the 2010 health care law. 

American Crossroads is a conservative super PAC (political action committee). Super PACs were made possible by the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which eliminated restrictions on corporate funding for political candidates and causes.

C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the end of the program. close
