Conservatives are worried that proposals from Senate Democrats amount to a growing effort to fundamentally transform the agency. One of those came in March, when Democratic New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall proposed legislation to completely kill the agency and replace it with a more partisan version that, he suggested, would be less divided.

"Gridlock leaves the agency powerless to enforce the few campaign finance laws remaining on the books," Udall said. "We need a new agency empowered to ensure our elections are fair and democratic."
