Didn’t see your post before putting mine up, Dave, and I hope readers will forgive the redundancy. But I wouldn’t get your hopes up too high, based on this decision, that McCain-Feingold is in trouble. Election Law blogger Rick Hansen argues that this is “about the best decision that (realistic) supporters of campaign finance regulation could have hoped for from the new Roberts Court.” I’d quibble with Hansen’s analysis a bit (Roberts and particularly Alito’s deference to the Buckley precedent doesn’t necessarily indicate that they’ll never find contribution limits unconstitutional), but he’s surely right that “Battles will rage across the country over the constitutionality of particular contribution limit laws.”
