Priebus's comments came shortly after the high court handed down the ruling. Priebus also cited the controversial 2010 Citizens United ruling, which allowed corporations, unions, and other groups to spend unlimited amounts of money in elections, in explaining his support for Wednesday's ruling.

"Look, I don't disagree with Citizens United," Preibus continued. "I think it's a good case. I think that we should all be free and exercise our First Amendment rights. But this is a victory today for people who want to see political parties and candidates on the same playing field or a little bit closer to the same playing field as the First Amendment was intended to allow us to be."
