Potential Republican 2016 presidential candidate U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) speaks at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference in Nashua

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.
