Campaign Finance Reform

Under our current campaign finance system, lobbyists and Wall Street write the rules while the rest of us pay the price. In Washington, I will push for comprehensive campaign finance reform and never sell out my constituents.

David with volunteers at a political eventBig corporations should not be able to buy influence in a democracy. Under our current campaign finance system, lobbyists and Wall Street insiders write the rules while the rest of us pay the price. These aren't just empty promises, the average donation to my campaign is $23, and ours was ranked the 6th most grassroots campaign out of more than 1,200 congressional races this cycle.

Policy Priorities:

  1. Support overturning Citizens United and encourage new campaign finance regulation. While legal advocates are pushing to overturn Citizens United through the courts, we need to write new campaign finance rules that put the power back in the hands of everyday people.
  2. Support a small donor public-matching system. Expand the availability of public-matching donations for congressional elections.
