Jamie Raskin

Incumbent

Rep. Jamie Raskin (MD-08) has been a long-time advocate for campaign finance reform. Prior to serving in Congress, Raskin taught at the American University Washington College of Law for over 25 years and was a progressive leader in the Maryland State Senate. Raskin currently serves as Chair of the Oversight Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties of the House Administration Committee and Vice-Chair of the House Democracy Reform Task Force.

During Rep. Raskin’s tenure in Congress, he has introduced several bills aimed at cleaning up Washington and limiting the influence of money in politics. In the 116th Congress, Raskin introduced H.R. 746, the Get Foreign Money Out of U.S. Elections Act, intended to preserve the integrity of our democratic process. As a previous member of the Maryland State Senate, Raskin successfully introduced legislation requiring outside spenders to disclose their spending in Maryland races. Raskin helped lead the fight to pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate.
