Judge Enjoins Enforcement of Wisconsin Candidate Limits
A federal judge entered a preliminary injunction in favor of a conservative group challenging the state’s limits on the amount candidates can collect from political action committees. The group argued the limits infringed upon its First Amendment free speech rights.
The judge agreed and issued a preliminary injunction preventing the Government Accountability Board from enforcing the limit.
