ABSTRACT
The article discusses the high cost of election campaigning in the U.S. The price of the 1952 election has been estimated at anywhere from $80 million to $200 million. The chairman of the National Citizens for presidential election between Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard M. Nixon told the Boggs Committee of the U.S. House in 1952 that his organization spent $1.2 million. Members of the U.S. Congress have, for some time, been disturbed by the unrealistic ceiling on their own campaign expenditures, which seems to necessitate loose reporting practices in the first place. Another worry is the increasing intrusion of supposedly non-political organizations and committees into elections with bundles of educational material.
