Brian from Mayday.US writes, "Lessig's anti-corruption Mayday PAC is entering its toughest race of this election cycle - supporting pro-campaign finance reform NH Senatorial candidate Jim Rubens in the Republican Primary against Scott Brown. Lawrence Lessig's anti-corruption Mayday PAC has just launched an online tool where supporters of campaign finance reform across the nation can call voters on the phone and urge them to come to the polls and vote for reform. Its first test is this Tuesday, September 9th."
