Erin Murphy, the attorney representing Republican donor Shaun McCutcheon, speaks to the media in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington October 8, 2013. The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday appeared closely divided over whether to lift restrictions on how much people can donate to political candidates and parties. The nine justices weighed a challenge by McCutcheon, an Alabama businessman, and the Republican National Committee to the overall limit on campaign contributions that donors can make to individual candidates and committees over a two-year federal election cycle.
