End Citizens United Endorses Rita Hart For IA-02

Sep 19, 2019

Hart supports the For the People Act (H.R. 1), a once-in-a-generation anti-corruption and reform package

End Citizens United (ECU) endorsed today Rita Hart for Congress in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District. A life-long Iowan, Hart has fought to put her community first in the Iowa State Senate and supports the For the People Act (H.R. 1), a historic anti-corruption and reform bill aimed at putting power back in the hands of American people.

“Rita Hart is a dedicated public servant and knows the needs of her community better than anyone,” said End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller. “Rita will put the voices of Iowa families over those of corporate special interests and mega-donors once in Washington. From her time as an educator to serving in the Iowa State Senate, Rita has fought vigorously for her community throughout her career. End Citizens United is proud to stand with Rita Hart, and we look forward to helping her win.”

“I’m proud to be endorsed by End Citizens United,” said Rita Hart. “Whether it’s lowering the cost of healthcare, improving education, or growing our rural economy, I am running for Congress because hardworking Iowans need someone who listens to them––not the loud and powerful voices in Washington that hide behind anonymous front groups. I’ll work to get rid of dark money so special interests can’t drown out families here in southeast Iowa and we can make progress on the issues that really matter.”

ECU is dedicated to getting Big Money out of politics and fixing the rigged system in Washington so government works for all Americans. The reform group has four million members nationwide, including 8,000 in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, and is entirely grassroots-funded with an average donation of just $14.
