Conservatives oppose campaign-finance ruling

Many GOP lawmakers and business groups cheered the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month allowing unlimited political spending by corporations. But nearly three-quarters of conservative Republicans oppose the decision, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, and nearly two-thirds of them favor congressional efforts to limit spending. Overall, 8 in 10 Americans oppose the ruling, and 72 percent favor reinstating limits.
