Trevor Potter is Recognized for His Impact on Campaign Finance Issues
Washington, D.C.—November 19, 2013: The editors of Campaigns & Elections Magazine have selected Trevor Potter among the political world's top 50 influencers to watch in the 2014 election cycle. Mr. Potter, who leads the Political Law Group of Caplin & Drysdale, is one of the leading Republican lawyers advocating for reform on money-in-politics issues. In his role as President of the nonprofit group, The Campaign Legal Center, Mr. Potter rallied opposition to Shaun McCutcheon's Supreme Court challenge to aggregate contribution limits. A former chairman of the Federal Election Commission and John McCain's presidential campaign lawyer, Mr. Potter is a well-recognized voice on lobbying regulation and government ethics. "I am honored to be among such a distinguished group of campaign and election colleagues," said Mr. Potter.
Campaigns & Elections Magazine will honor these power players for their resounding impact on the sectors they serve, including tech, lobbying, public affairs and politics. Those on the list will be recognized in a special supplement of Campaigns & Elections Magazine in late November and at a black tie gala at The Mayflower Hotel on December 7, 2013.
