Missouri State Senator: Donor limits need removal,

Missouri Senate Majority Leader Charlie Shields announced yesterday that he is interested in pushing a campaign finance system without contribution limits in the next legislative session.

Shields to the Columbia Tribune: "I think there are people who are scared of the issue. But to allow the existing issue of what we’ve got right now to continue – to me, that’s scarier. … I think it’s going to be a little bit challenging, but I could be wrong. People may look at where we are right now and just think, ‘That’s not something we can continue to operate under and tolerate.’"
