The growing influence of super PACs is threatening to turn American politics into a commercialized charade, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested in an interview published Wednesday.
"You may want to just wear logos if you're running for president: 'sponsored by so-and-so.' I mean it's going to get to be like NASCAR where everybody should put logos on your suit," he told National Journal.
Graham said that all a campaign really needs is one major donor.
"Basically, if you can get an ideologically aligned rich person who believes in you ... and they want to be a player in politics, you can keep a campaign going as long as the guy's willing to write checks," he said. "Which changes everything."
The super PAC "West Main Street Values Fund" has formed to back Graham's re-election in 2014.
