On Tuesday the US Supreme Court will hear arguments as Wisconsin Right to Life challenges advertising limits in the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.
The group was barred from broadcasting ads that mentioned Senator Russ Feingold in 2004 because of a provision that doesn't let them use corporate or union money for ads identifying federal candidates two months before a general election.
The Supreme Court upheld the law in 2003.
Wisconsin Right to Life argues that its ads should have been allowed anyway because they constituted lobbying, not electioneering.
