Senator Jack Reed (RI) served eight years of active duty in the Army, taught at West Point, and served in the U.S Army reserves. In 1996, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, where he has fought on behalf of veterans and Rhode Island’s economy and infrastructure. As a senior member of the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, he authored several pieces of historic Wall Street reform and has been recognized for his work on consumer protection.
In office, Reed co-sponsored the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell, Senate Republicans, and special interests who control the U.S. Senate. The bill would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote.
