Supreme Court Should Uphold Aggregate Contribution Limit
Washington, D.C.--National campaign finance watchdog Public Campaign released the following statement about the Supreme Court's decision to hear McCutcheon v. FEC, a challenge to aggregate contribution limits.
Statement from Nick Nyhart, president and CEO of Public Campaign:
"In agreeing to hear the McCutcheon case, the Supreme Court has an opportunity to defend common sense limits on how much influence wealthy special interests can buy in Washington. In recent decisions, the Court has too often sided with big donors and against our democracy. It's time for the Court to stand up for the voices of everyday people and uphold the limits."
The Court's order is available here.
