Bradley proposes free ad time for presidential candidates

Published on .

Democratic presidential candidate Bill Bradley today unveiled several proposals aimed at ad spending in the presidential campaign. He proposed requiring broadcasters to give free time in the 60 days before an election to presidential candidates who accept limits on fund-raising. He also urged political parties be barred from obtaining so-called "soft money'' contributions. Sen. Bradley also offered to push the Democratic Party to forgo soft money next year if Republicans would also reject such money.
