Elizabeth Warren

Massachusetts

Candidate for U.S. Senate

Leading the charge for campaign finance reform, Warren has been a vocal advocate for disclosure, fighting for legislation in the Senate to stop mega-donors from hiding their political spending. She’s also pushed for rules requiring government contractors and public corporations to disclose their political spending. Warren is a staunch supporter of a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and the corrosive, corrupting influence of money in politics. She is opposed by the Wall Street special interests due to her career-long and fierce advocacy protecting consumers against fraud and manipulation of big banks. In 2018, Warren is reprising her call for the People’s Pledge to ensure the people of Massachusetts hear directly from the candidates, not from shady outside groups. The groundbreaking pledge in Warren’s 2012 race kept outside money out of the race by requiring candidates who benefited from an outside ad to donate half the value of the ad to charity.
