Supports comprehensive campaign finance reform

The Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Citizens United v. F.E.C. was one of the worst decisions in our country's history. Now, corporations, special interests, and billionaires can spend unlimited, untraceable money in America's elections. In Congress, he will fight to end Big Money in politics and fix our rigged political system by sponsoring and passing comprehensive campaign finance reform.
