Steve Bullock puts Citizens United decision at center of presidential push

DES MOINES, Iowa — The two dozen Democrats seeking the party’s presidential nomination have found few applause lines more likely to earn a standing ovation than a pledge to overhaul campaign finance rules.

Now, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) is putting the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. FEC decision at the center of his long-shot bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The decision, and the resulting influx of outside and undisclosed money, is what Bullock sees as the hurdle that stands in the way of every other item on the progressive wish list.
