RNC v. FEC: Supreme Court Motion of Representative Van Hollen to Affirm

Court Level
Supreme Court

Motion To Affirm for Intervenor-Defendant Representative Chris Van Hollen. The question presented is whether appellants’ purported “as-applied” challenge to Title I of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002—which limits contributions to political parties—is foreclosed by this Court’s decision in McConnell v. FEC, 540 U.S. 93 (2003), which upheld BCRA against the very same arguments that appellants now raise. It is argued that the judgment of the district court should be affirmed.
