Montana Concedes that Law Regulating Content of Campaign Literature is Unconstitutional

The case has a hearing February 7 in U.S. District Court in Missoula. The law says that if a candidate for state office mentions an opponent’s voting record, the campaign literature must include the opponent’s entire voting record on that issue over the last six years.
