lengthy presidential campaign process is more truly egalitarian than the compressed process advocated by some. It allows little-known candidates with limited funds to invest time instead of money, thereby making themselves known in the small states.

Which of the following statements most directly contradicts the argument above for a lengthy campaign?

C) An excessively long presidential campaign deadens public interest in the workings of democracy.

E)A lengthy campaign discourages many potential candidates who are not wealthy enough to leave private jobs for long periods of time.

Guys, i've got only TWO choices for it, but the answer is ONE of them.

Picked E.

It painly states that the argument put forth is self defeating and does damage to not-so-rich candidates instead of providing them with a fair opportunity.

HMTG.

E for me too.

The argument states that a lengthy presidential campaign enables smaller candidates with limited money to spend more time. But, if a candidate has less time for a campaign, as they cannot leave their jobs for campaigning, then the candidate cannot spend time. Therefore this statement contradicts the argument.

C does not contradict the argument at all.
