Sen. Cruz: Our Democracy Works Better When the Free Speech Rights of the Citizenry are Unfettered

Sen. Cruz Praises the Supreme Court’s decision in McCutcheon v. FEC

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today released the following statement praising the Supreme Court for its recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC to uphold individuals’ right to free political speech.

“Today's Supreme Court decision is a victory for the First Amendment. The restriction that the Court struck down benefitted incumbent politicians by limiting the ability of Americans to support as many candidates as they choose. Politicians in both parties have pressed this law to restrict the ability of citizens to participate in the political process, but our democracy works better when the free speech rights of the citizenry are unfettered."
