Miles Rapoport named national president of Common Cause

Miles S. Rapoport, a progressive activist who was a Connecticut legislator and a secretary of the state, was named Tuesday as the national president and chief executive of Common Cause, the nonpartisan government watchdog. Rapoport, 64, the president of Demos, a research and advocacy group, will begin work March 10, succeeding Bob Edgar, a former congressman who died in April at age 69. It will place Rapoport in Washington at a pivotal time for a key Common Cause issue: The continuing debate about the role of money in politics.
