Fighting for Campaign Finance Reform
I believe our campaign finance system is broken and largely responsible for the polarization and dysfunction in our politics today. Much of this can be traced back to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which allowed corporate special interest money to flood into our democratic system and drown out the voice of voters in our own elections. For these reasons, I have made a commitment to not accept corporate PAC money during this campaign.
If elected, I promise I will fight to reform our campaign finance laws, supporting policies that would increase transparency and end unlimited spending in our politics, to ensure that the voices of our citizens are heard. I support measures that would hold candidates and donors — including my own — accountable through clearly defined fundraising disclosures, deadlines, and penalties. Voters deserve to know who is funding their elected officials.
