McCutcheon v. FEC: Supreme Court Amicus Brief of Senator McConnell Supporting McCutcheon

Court Level
Supreme Court

Brief filed by Senator McConnell supporting Appellants. The brief argued that the Court should revisit the bifurcated standard of review for political contribution and expenditure limits and hold that strict scrutiny applies to both. Also, if the Court nevertheless decided that "closely drawn" scrutiny should apply to contribution limits, the aggregate limit on contributions by individuals to candidates cannot pass even that less rigorous standard.
