Tuesday morning, the Supreme Court “noted probable jurisdiction” in McCutcheon v. FEC. In other words, the Court will hear the case in its next Term, beginning in October. [I am serving as Of Counsel to McCutcheon, along with Stephen Hoersting and Dan Backer; Bopp Law Firm is lead counsel.] The announcement has of course garnered significant national attention; Election Law Blog has a compilation of some coverage here.
And the Wall Street Journal just released an editorial ($) presumably to run in tomorrow’s print edition.
