ABSTRACT
The article predicts the collapse of the campaign finance system in the U.S. with the holding of the 2012 election. It foresees the potential for Republican candidates to face pressure to reject public financing in the primary race. A cited reason for this is the tactical advantage being enjoyed by candidates, that is, the freedom to spend unlimited sums in any state. According to Republican strategist Ed Rollins, the 2012 campaign calendar will force candidates to build an infrastructure in the first four or five states holding primaries or caucuses.
