"I am proud that the RNC led the way in bringing this case and pleased that the Court agreed that limits on how many candidates or committees a person may support unconstitutionally burden core First Amendment political activities.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), an opponent of campaign finance regulations, was a party to the case.
