Missouri Supreme Court Restores Campaign Contribution Limits: What now?
According to a Columbia Tribune article, campaign limits are now back in effect. Now most statewide, state senate, and state rep candidates will be able to return those contribution that exceed the limit. but what happens to those municipal races, city council and school board candidates, who already raised and spent that money. Granted, there are probably not many huge contributions, but most of these campaign committees do not have cash on hand after the election. Though it would probably be nice to see Gov. Blunt give back a $50,000 contribution back. it will be interesting to watch.
