The article highlights the availability of late money or funds that can be used for political campaigns in the U.S. Media brim with the kinds of donation-inspiring information that used to be available mostly on a local level through private channels. Electronic media, in other words, queue up late donations. Another factor behind the availability of late money is that electronic funds transfers have become commonplace. Sponsored activities and other reward programs can be used to create a regular flow of monthly contributions.
