(AP) The Supreme Court appears likely to throw out caps on some contributions by the biggest individual donors to political campaigns.


The court's conservative justices voiced repeated skepticism Tuesday about overall limits on what individuals may give in a two-year federal election cycle.


Chief Justice John Roberts said that telling an individual he can give the legal maximum of $2,600 per election to only a handful of candidates for Congress "seems to me a very direct restriction" on First Amendment rights.


The court did not appear willing to call into question all contribution limits in its first major campaign finance case since 2010.
