“Presidential Election Will Shape Supreme Court, and National Policies, for Years to Come”

Jess Bravin for the WSJ:

A single Democratic appointment to the Supreme Court could doom the 2010 Citizens United decision, which struck down restrictions on corporate and union political spending. That ruling and other opinions invalidating campaign finance laws came on 5-4 conservative majority votes that said restrictions on finance amounted to a restraint of free speech. A Clinton appointee almost certainly would join liberal justices who dispute that analogy and have signaled an intent to significantly narrow or overrule the Citizens United ruling.
