Sherri Greenberg Explains Super PACS, the Relationship Between Ron and Rand Paul and Why Rick Perry is in South Carolina in a New Series of Videos

Sherri Greenberg, LBJ School Lecturer and a former Texas State Representative, takes on several pressing issues that have come to light on the road to the New Hampshire and South Carolina Republican primaries. Greenberg explains Rick Perry's decision to move on to South Carolina after coming in 5th in the Iowa Caucus. She sheds light on the unique political relationship between Ron Paul and his son Rand Paul, also an elected Republican. She also describes the influence that money and the Super PACs (Political Action Committees) have had on the various candidates' campaigns and explains why a candidate like Rick Santorum, who has less money than his competitors, could do so well in the Iowa Caucus.
