Politicians, Persuasion, and Campaign Finance Laws

Part of me thought about how we have campaign finance laws because it tends to be that whoever puts more money into advertising often wins the election. However, politicians are always trying to persuade their constituents to vote for and agree with them like regular ads try to persuade you to buy something, so honestly, if there’s no limit on what you can spend on a regular commercial, there seems to be no point to campaign finances laws…at least, the ones that limit where money is being spent.
