Hill;6/26/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 77, p1
The article reports on the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that could disadvantage the 2008 campaigns of Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain. It is stated that the Supreme Court upheld the ban on corporate and union funds paying for advertisements that expressly advocate for the election or the defeat of a candidate which makes it easier to criticize incumbents than other candidates who do not hold federal office.
