I am deeply concerned that our democracy has been under assault in recent years. A small minority of the super-rich and powerful have sought to control our elections using dark money, massive redistricting efforts, and campaigns to repress voter rights. Simultaneously, our President has expressed his contempt for the Constitution both by questioning the role of the Judicial Branch and by lining his pockets with payments from foreign powers in violation of the Emoluments Clause. I believe that we need to immediately fight to preserve the integrity of our Democracy, by pushing for reform to address Citizens United, gerrymandering, and the restriction of voters’ rights. We also need to uphold the Voting Rights Act, and restore Section Five, to ensure every American citizen has an equal opportunity to vote. I will continue to work to eliminate corruption and cronyism in Washington D.C.
