Defend Democracy with Campaign Finance Reform

Legislate an End to Citizens United

Citizens United did considerable damage to fair elections, enabling political nonprofits to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence the outcomes of elections without disclosing their donors. We can pass legislation that would require such organizations to divulge their donors, limiting the influence of dark money and bolstering transparency.

Publicly Fund Small Donor Matching

We can empower the voices of ordinary Americans by requiring that small donations of $200 or less are met by publicly financed matching funds at a ratio of five to one. This would give candidates a realistic chance to fund their campaigns with small donations only, freeing them from the influence of special interests.
