In the ongoing legal machinations over City of San Diego contribution limits, the Republican Party within the last hour heard that the emergency motion to lift the stay on donations to its endorsed candidates was granted.
This means that the GOP is able to make direct contributions to its candidates – in any amount. The Party is now also able to engage in coordinated expenditures with its candidates in reaching out to non-Republicans.
Party Chairman Tony Krvaric said a press release will follow. “Of course,” he also said, “this First Amendment right applies to ALL political parties, so our hard-fought victory will permit the Democrats to do the same. That’s alright. We’re more than happy to stand up for the First Amendment rights of ALL Americans and ALL political parties.”
