Strengthening Our Democracy

Our elections are under attack from big money and foreign interference

By the People, for the People

We are a democracy of the people, by the people, and for the people. That means the leaders we elect should be given their power by the people, not by big money. Since Citizens United, our elections have been flooded with outrageous amounts of money.. That’s why in 2010, Kurt introduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and That’s why he has led the fight to give Congress the power to regulate campaign contributions. 

Our elections are under direct attack from foreign powers who seek to undermine our democracy. Kurt believes that we need to take decisive action to protect our elections against foreign interference. Most recently, Kurt defended our democracy by voting in favor of the Stopping Harmful Interference in Elections for a Lasting Democracy (SHIELD) Act.
