Independent Expenditures

Organizations and individuals looking to do more than just write a check to their favorite candidates can spend unlimited money -- independently -- to buy ads, send mail or otherwise advocate for the election or defeat of specific candidates. Corporations, labor unions and ideological groups may also spend directly on these activities as a result of the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC. They cannot coordinate with candidates or parties.
