End Citizens United // Let America Vote Endorses Dave Min for Congress

May 15, 2024

End Citizens United // Let America Vote (ECU // LAV) today endorsed Dave Min for California’s 47th Congressional District. Min is refusing to take corporate PAC money in his campaign.

“As we face unprecedented threats against our democracy, we need strong leaders who will stand up for the people while in Congress—and Dave Min is that leader,” said Tiffany Muller, President of End Citizens United // Let America Vote. “He knows our democracy cannot work unless every voice is heard, not just special interests—that’s why he’s refusing to take a dime of corporate PAC money. Orange County families can trust Dave to fight for the issues that are most pressing to them, like protecting abortion rights, getting rid of Big Money’s influence in politics, and lowering the price of prescription drugs. We are excited to endorse Dave and look forward to helping him win.”

“Campaign finance is fundamentally broken in America today,” said State Senator Dave Min. “The flood of special interest dark money and pay-to-play politics at the highest levels of our government—including Supreme Court Justices, U.S. Senators, and former Presidents—have undermined public trust in the integrity of our political institutions. We must strengthen and reinvigorate our democracy, and that starts by electing people who will stand up to dark money and special interests. I’m proud to be the only candidate in this race who is not taking corporate PAC money, and I’m grateful for the endorsements of End Citizens United // Let America Vote.”

As a state senator, Min introduced legislation to protect Californians from unlawful voter ID requirements, to ensure that every person was able to exercise one of their most fundamental freedoms. In addition to his local work, he supports federal protections such as the Freedom to Vote Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. He believes that Congress must shine a light on the dark money in our political system and firmly supports legislation that would create more transparency and accountability, like the DISCLOSE Act. As a state senator, he also introduced anti-corruption legislation that would bar public officials from granting government contracts to family members.
