Jim McGovern


Candidate for Massachusetts 4th Congressional District

Jim represents the 2nd district of Massachusetts. He is a passionate advocate for campaign finance reform, publicly supporting the overturn of both the Citizens United and McCutcheon v. FEC Supreme Court rulings. He serves on the House Democratic Caucus’s Task Force on Election Reform and has introduced two Constitutional amendments that would negate Citizens United. Jim’s amendments were House Joint Resolution 20, which would give Congress and state legislatures the power to regulate political spending, and House Joint Resolution 21, which would declare that corporations are not entitled to the same rights as natural born persons. Outside of campaign finance reform, Jim has fought for his constituents by authoring legislation to increase Pell Grant funding and advocating for lowering the cost of healthcare.
