Your View: It’s our right to support/oppose any candidate

Theodore Ziolkowski (Your View, July 14) calls Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan “average” and Republican candidate Thom Tillis “terrible,” leaving no doubts about his political affiliation.  He decries anti-Hagan activism by all non-North Carolinians and proposes to lawfully prohibit one’s political contributions to anyone for whom one cannot vote.
