Here's one White House hopeful who wants to get big money out of politics

Potential Republican 2016 presidential candidate U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) speaks at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference in NashuaBy Andy Sullivan NASHUA, N.H. (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has an unusual message for a potential Republican presidential candidate: He wants to stem the flow of unregulated money in politics. Graham agrees with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other Democrats that a 2010 Supreme Court decision that cleared the way for unlimited spending has given too much power to wealthy donors. “We’ve got to figure out a way to fix this mess, because basically 50 people are running the whole show,” Graham told Reuters at a gathering of Republican hopefuls in New Hampshire. Graham is a leading voice on foreign policy within his party and his disarming humor on the stump recalls Senator John McCain of Arizona, a close friend who was the 2008 Republican presidential nominee.
