    FILE – In this Jan. 21, 2010, file photo Citizens United President David Bossie talks on his cell phone outside the Supreme Court in Washington after the court's ruling on the campaign finance reform case. The emergence of super PACs and other outside groups, emboldened partly by the court's 2010 Citizens United decision, has done more than anything else to reshape the contours of campaign fundraising. Operating with few rules and limited oversight, outside groups spent a record-shattering $1 billion to influence political campaigns last fall. And the system faces further de-regulation as the Supreme Court prepares to hear a case this year that could wipe away aggregate annual limits on direct contributions to candidates and official campaign committees.

    In this June 25, 2012, photo, the Supreme Court in Washington. Corporations and labor unions have been emboldened this election season to spend unlimited sums of cash. The Supreme Court is telling them to go full-speed ahead. The high court reaffirmed its controversial Citizens United decision from 2010, following a challenge to a Montana law that prohibited corporate spending in elections. But the decision issued Monday will likely mean a push for more campaign-finance deregulation. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

    FILE - Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock is seen at an event in which he announced the start of his 2012 gubernatorial campaign on in this Sept. 7, 2011 file photo taken in Billings, Mont. Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia are backing Montana in its fight to prevent the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision from being used to strike down state laws restricting corporate campaign spending. Bullock argues that political corruption in the Copper King era led to the state ban on corporate campaign spending. A clarification of Citizens United is needed to make clear that states can block certain political spending in the interest of limiting corruption, he said. On Friday, May 18, 2012 Montana's case was given a boost when U.S. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-D-R.I., signed on in support. (AP Photo/Matthew Brown, File)

Independent groups favoring Mitt Romney are launching TV advertisements in competitive states, providing cover against President Barack Obama's well-heeled campaign.

    In this Jan. 20, 2012 photo, people hold signs during a gathering on the anniversary of the Citizens United decision in Montpelier, Vt. First, it was the Vermont senator with socialist leanings. Then it was Jerry of Ben & Jerry's ice cream fame. Now there are about 50 Vermont communities ready to chime in on a proposal to pass a Constitutional amendment to clarify that corporations do not have the same rights as human beings., (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
