“Group picks Alaska to challenge unlimited campaign donations”

AP:

A national group is focusing on Alaska in a bid to get the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit a 2010 decision that upended how campaigns are run in this country.

The court decision paved the way for corporations and unions to make unlimited independent expenditures, and in Alaska, was viewed by state officials as likely rendering several provisions of law prohibiting or limiting certain contributions unconstitutional.

Washington, D.C.-based Equal Citizens wants to put that interpretation to the test but it could face an uphill battle.
