This will be an interesting case to watch
The Supreme Court announced yesterday that it will review the constitutionality of the so-called Millionaires' Amendment, which allows opponents of some self-funded congressional candidates to raise more money than federal law normally allows.
The court's decision would come in time to affect the 2008 congressional campaigns.
The law is being challenged by Democrat Jack Davis, who lost in 2004 and 2006 to Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds (R-N.Y.). In the 2006 race, Davis spent more than $2.2 million of his own money, and lost 52 percent to 48 percent.
I know a simple solution to this - public financed campaigns! It's supposed to be a democracy, not an auction.
