The United States and Canada enacted similar campaign finance reform laws during the early years of the century. Both nations’ recent elections were influenced by calls from the political right to repeal major pieces of these laws. This article discusses the role campaign finance regulation played in these elections, the consequences of the early-decade reforms for these elections’ results, and the trend towards deregulation of campaign finance in both nations.
