Another form of money in politics exists that rarely gets discussed. The one in which states can require thousands of dollars for a person to run for office.

Now, a person doesn't have to pay any money if they can aquire a certain amount of signatures but the money option ever remains for those who can afford it rather than be restricted to the requirement of those without the money.

The Price of Democracy.

Yes, and the DNC and RNC have no problem funding their people. Want to run outside that? good luck.
