Cleveland City Council prepares to double its own campaign contribution limits (subscription required): Jonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law, discussed a Cleveland City Council proposal that would double the campaign contribution cap for council races, noting that the higher caps are more likely to benefit incumbents than challengers. “It’s possible that this is designed to make it easier for (incumbents) to raise more money from people, which might, in turn, scare off potential competitors,” he said.
