Fight corruption and promote democracy

The voice of the people must be louder than that of big money and dirty politics. I will fight for our democracy, challenging the influence of dark money (enabled by the Citizen’s United decision), gerrymandered districts, and laws aimed at making it harder for citizens to vote.

Our democracy depends on an engaged citizenry and institutions that elevate, rather than debase, our political system. With the rise of dark money and attack politics, our citizens have declining faith in our democratic institutions.

We have worked to encourage voting in Colorado—through mail in balloting—and we have developed competitive districts. We need to maintain this tradition and revitalize our democracy. We must not allow it to become a tool of the wealthy and special interests hiding behind dark money organizations.
