Ohio: Supreme Court raises judicial campaign contribution limits

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports: Contributors to judicial candidates can boost their donations in future elections.

The Ohio Supreme Court is increasing contribution limits with the goal of prompting contributors to give money directly to individual campaigns instead of third-party issue advocacy groups.

The current limits were raised by as little as $500 for individual contributions to candidates for the Supreme Court to as much as $25,000 from political parties.

The court did not change contributions from organizations to judicial candidates. -- High court raises contribution limits
