There's lots of barriers to overcome with the 'State route". Yours is a perfect example.
With no further changes, some States might be sufficiently 'conservative' to loudly announce who and how much funding they've received. Perhaps outright legislation on a State level blocking extra-state election funding?
This isn't any more than a broad idea I'm throwing out here. I see more opportunity for fixes locally than Federally as a general overview.
Your point raises another issue. Not all states are clearly for or against the federal agenda. The Keystone is probably in that 'toss-up' group. LOL.
That being said, a local fight is more confrontable....and winnable than a federal one.
Relocation might be an option is the 'wrong side' wins out in your state..

In our recent governors race, the 2 of them spent 82.3 MILLION dollars! Now keep in mind, that DOES NOT include the money spent by Super pacs!
