End Citizens United (ECU) and Let America Vote (LAV) President Tiffany Muller released the following statement congratulating Governor John Hickenlooper on winning the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate in Colorado:
“Congratulations to Governor John Hickenlooper. As governor, John’s independent perspective brought people together to get things done for Coloradans. Now in his run for the Senate, he’s rejecting corporate PAC money and will bring that same approach to fight the status quo in Washington. Senator Cory Gardner has taken $5.4 million from corporate PACs throughout his career and repeatedly sided with corporate special interests to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Unlike Senator Gardner, John Hickenlooper will stand up for everyday Coloradans.”
ECU and LAV endorsed John Hickenlooper in April 2020 because of his commitment to reforming our broken campaign finance system and protecting the right to vote. Hickenlooper recently unveiled a bold democracy reform agenda. The Protecting Our Democracy plan includes prioritizing the passage of the For the People Act (S. 949), overturning Citizens United, restoring the Voting Rights Act, and rejecting corporate PAC money.
