WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is rejecting a conservative group's challenge to a Delaware campaign finance law.

The justices on Tuesday left in place a lower court ruling allowing the 2012 law to be enforced. The measure requires third-party groups working independently of candidates to influence elections to disclose the source of donations.

Delaware Strong Families challenged the disclosure requirements.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas said they would have heard the group's appeal.

The case is Delaware Strong Families v. Denn, 15-1234.
