Maine AG supports Citizens United, staying out of Montana case

For the subset of readers who follow federal campaign finance issues, this short piece in today's Portland Press Herald may be of interest.

Maine's Attorney General (and U.S. Senate hopeful), William Schneider, won't be joining 22 other state Attorneys General in supporting Montana's effort to reduce the scope of the Citizens United decision because he agrees with the court. Details herein.

I also have a brief post over at Washington Monthly that frames and flags my Telegram piece from this Sunday on the U.S. Senate money race here in Maine. (Mainers might find the link to The Hill story on the national Democrats' standoffish-ness of interest.)
