‘Murray Hill for Congress’ Stunt Gets ‘Face the Nation’ Shout Out


Watch CBS News Videos Online

The PR firm Murray Hill, Inc, who is running for Congress (as a corporation, not a person) to protest the recent Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission has upsold itself to the Washington Post, and to “Face the Nation” this Sunday.

CBS’s Bob Schieffer was pulling for the “candidate.” “That’s too bad. I was looking forward to a spirited debate on when corporate life begins,” said the chuckling anchor.

The Sunday political show ran the campaign ad in its entirety during the segment, free of charge.
