The Texas Tribune Interviews Trevor Potter

December 8, 2011, The Texas Tribune

Excerpt taken from article.

Trevor Potter, former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, is an attorney in the Caplin & Drysdale law firm's Washington, D.C., office. He specializes in campaign finance and election law, served as general counsel to John McCain's 2000 and 2008 presidential campaigns and is, notably, the attorney for Stephen Colbert and his Super PAC, "Making a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow."

Potter was in Austin last week to speak at the Professional Advocacy Association of Texas conference. He talked with The Texas Tribune about the confusing state of campaign finance, why donors want the certainty of limits on their giving and how to run a presidential campaign without the baggage of an actual candidate.
