How Campaigns Coordinate with Super PACs

Washington Post: "Welcome to the super PAC era, in which coordination between well-heeled outside groups and congressional candidates is forbidden. But Democrats and Republicans on both sides have found creative workarounds. Candidates post clip reels on YouTube that can be pulled by anyone who wants to run a positive commercial for them. Campaign committees post opposition research that anyone who wants to make an attack ad would find handy. Outside groups in turn have shown they are not shy about taking cues on timing and subject matter."

"It's all legal, too. And while neither side will say this is what they are up to, there are some clear examples of the give-and-take that's been going on, regardless of intent."
