Question 2 supporters aren’t quite popping champagne yet. But with less than three weeks until Election Day, they’re unarguably well-positioned. Perhaps the least contentious of the three ballot questions in Massachusetts this year, Question 2 is part of a national effort to push for new laws to limit the influence of money in politics — specifically, to overturn the 2010 Citizens United v.

It has the support of Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, too.

Beacon Hill lawmakers have already passed resolutions in previous years … [Read more...] about Massachusetts ballot Question 2 will almost certainly pass. But what would it actually do?
