Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis has reintroduced the Jonny Wade Pediatric Cancer Research Act. Davis’ bill would eliminate the Presidential Election Campaign Fund and transfer the $391.5-million balance to the 10-Year Pediatric Research Initiative Fund. Wade was 8-years-old when he died of brain cancer on Christmas Eve 2015. Davis says he got to meet Jonny not long before he died.
Davis says the Presidential Election Campaign Fund has not been used by any major party candidate since 2008.
