The Impact of “Citizens United” on the 2012 Elections

Nov 24, 2012

Early on, predictions were that this twenty-ten U.S. Supreme Court decision would lead outside groups to play an outsized role in our elections, by allowing unlimited political spending.  But now, some question how big an impact Citizens United really had.  We’ll look at this debate in New Hampshire. 


  • Lawrence M. Noble - President & CEO of Americans for Campaign Reform, an organization that opposed the Citizens United decision and promotes public funding of political campaigns.
  • Calvin Massey - Daniel Webster Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of New Hampshire Law School. Professor Massey is a supporter of the Citizens United decision.
