The GOP is filing a federal lawsuit that would get rid of the McCain-Feingold campaign regulations.
The Washington Times reported that the Republican party wants to make it easier to raise and spend political money.
McCain-Feingold went into effect in 2002. It created federal fundraising restrictions on national parties, and banned them from raising "soft money" or unlimited contributions from wealthy individuals, corporations and unions.
Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan wants the restrictions gone to "strengthen the Republican Party and bring a more level playing field to campaign finance."
