The antidote to big money in politics

Running for office is never easy, and it’s even harder for women.

Our campaign finance laws are partly to blame for that. It costs a lot of money to run a campaign, and many women who seek office have to start from scratch, calling everyone they know and asking them to contribute whatever they can afford, while their opponents can tap into long-established networks of donors. That puts women at an immediate disadvantage, and it keeps too many from even running in the first place.

I’m fighting to level the playing field and reform our campaign finance laws.

I support publicly financed elections – not only because it will level the playing field for women, but because it will help ensure that every American has an equal voice in our democratic process. And with your support, I’ll keep working in Congress to reform our campaign finance system and restore integrity and accountability to our elections.

I wouldn’t be able to fight for these issues without the grassroots supporters who make it all possible, and I’m incredibly grateful to have people like you standing with me.
