WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after the Supreme Court's decision in McCutcheon v. FEC:

“I am very disappointed in the Supreme Court’s ruling this morning in McCutcheon v. FEC.  By striking down aggregate campaign contribution limits, the Court is paving the way for candidates supported by unlimited funds to overwhelm competitors who do not have the same access.  I am encouraged that a number of Members, including Rep. John Sarbanes, are working on legislation to adopt commonsense campaign finance changes that will protect the integrity of our democracy.”
