DENVER– Speaking on the steps of the U.S. Federal Appeals Court building here Thursday, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff blasted the Supreme Court’s ruling earlier in the day that set aside campaign finance laws limiting corporate spending in the elections process. The controversial ruling played well into Romanoff’s recent campaign theme, that of the outsider-reformer ready to stand against the encroaching power of special interests. Romanoff said the court’s decision would only further erode the American people’s faith in the political system.
“If you like the way Washington works, you’re going to love this decision,” Romanoff said. “It’s as if the justices took a look at America’s political system and concluded that special interests don’t have enough power.”
