A coalition of labor, environmental, and student groups turned out today in Hartford for a rally on the financing of political campaigns.

Currently, there’s a $123,000 cap on donations to campaigns, parties or PACs during a two-year election cycle.

They’re concerned with how the U.S Supreme Court may rule when it comes to eliminating caps on some contributions by the wealthy and large corporations.

Some say if that happens, the voice of the ordinary person will be ignored.

Others on hand said influence should stem from ideas, not the size of someone’s wallet.
