Pledge to support the Citizens Election Fund in Howard
The Citizens’ Election Fund is a program aimed at empowering
voters and combatting the moneyed interests that have overtaken our elections
since the Citizens United decision in 2010. The Citizens Election Fund would
create a voluntary program that gives matching funds to candidates who seek
small donations and reject large and corporate contributions.
would enable candidates to wage competitive campaigns even though they lack
personal wealth or access to wealthy campaign contributors. It reduces
candidate reliance on special interest money and breaks down barriers that
prevent too many qualified people from running for office.
