Again, thank you for your prompt response!!!

There are lots of examples, but I would direct you to this one:

The constitutional protection afforded political speech has its "fullest and most urgent application precisely to the conduct of campaigns for political office." (Monitor Patriot Co. v. Roy, 401 U.S. 265 (1971)). "Speech on public issues occupies the highest rung of the hierarchy of First Amendment values and is entitled to special protection." (Connick v. Myers, 461 U.S. 138 (1983)

I certainly enjoy not having people banging on my door, but there are legitimate questions when it comes to political campaigns.
