Contributions to candidates, not parties.

Re "McCutcheon ruling will not open floodgates" (Another View, April 9): I take exception to the idea of stipulating that political contributions only be given to a political party versus specific candidates. This would lead to a party establishment only supporting candidates of which they personally approve, to the detriment to grassroots-supported candidates who may be at odds with the establishment leadership.

The current struggle between GOP establishment leadership with Tea Party-supported candidates comes most readily to mind. It's far better to allow donors to contribute directly to the candidates of their choice. It's called freedom of choice, after all.
