ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court case Randall versus Sorrell which dealt with a Vermont's law concerning contributions to campaign funds with reference to Buckley versus Valeo. The Court ruled that Vermont's contribution limits violated the First Amendment because they were too low. It emphasizes that the Court's decision in Randall shows why Buckley's holding on contribution must be overruled. It also discusses Justice Stephen Breyer's invalidation of both the expenditure and the contribution limits.
