No, public funds for political campaigns should be decreased. The federal government should not be in the business of seeding campaigns for office with our hard-earned money. If one wishes to "serve" in office, he or she should hit the bricks and convince other private citizens and organizations to support their campaign (i.e. donate money). What would stop the government body in charge of elections from defunding "hate" campaigns or stopping anti-government candidates from entering the fray? "Public" funding leads to government control. Live free or die!
