I just told you that already was mentioned by Direckshun to which I commented it didn't apply. Not exactly apples to apples here. Not only are there differences, but other parts of the Constitution apply because this is a state.

Citizens United was a case against the Federal Election Commission.
McCain–Feingold Act modified the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971. Let's not forget what was the heart of the matter in the Citizens case: a conservative group wanted to broadcast a film critical of Hillary Clinton.

Not every single thing even today, relies on using the incorporation doctrine. The Constitution says other things too. But this case is DIFFERENT--it is not identical even if it seems to have a similarity on the surface.
