The federal campaign laws have long placed limits on what individuals and certain entities can give to political parties in connection with federal elections. The Republican Party of Louisiana is asking a three-judge federal district court in D.C. to undo the “soft money” limits applicable to state and local party committees engaged in federal election activity.

The Campaign Legal Center is part of a litigation team representing 12 Wisconsin voters who have challenged the state’s Assembly district lines as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander in Whitford v. Nichol. Our case is the first purely partisan gerrymandering case to go to trial in 30 years.
The Campaign Legal Center is committed to protecting our democratic system. A healthy democracy requires an engaged citizenry and functioning civic processes that allow citizens’ voices to be heard and that ensure public officials can be held accountable. We employ a variety of strategies to protect and improve the democratic process—litigating in courts to defend pro-democracy policies and challenge anti-democracy policies, participating in regulatory agency proceedings to interpret and enforce the law, and drafting pro-democracy laws and policies and advocating their adoption. We engage in this work at every level of government—municipal, county, state and federal.
