Mizeur is refusing to take corporate PAC money 

End Citizens United // Let America Vote today endorsed former State Delegate Heather Mizeur for Congress in Maryland’s 1st congressional district against Congressman Andy Harris.

During her time in the Maryland House of Delegates, State Del. Mizeur worked to increase transparency in our government and get big money out of politics. She sponsored legislation to limit undisclosed money in Maryland politics and a bill to prevent Maryland politicians from accepting donations from foreign nationals. She is refusing donations from corporate PACs, and has been outspoken in emphasizing the importance of protecting the freedom to vote and increasing access to the ballot box.

Mizeur is challenging extremist GOP Congressman Andy Harris. Congressman Harris has consistently promoted the dangerous Big Lie that led to the deadly January 6 insurrection. He is known for spreading dangerous conspiracy theories and using his position of power for his benefit. Representative Harris continuously votes against the interests of the people of Maryland and in favor of his corporate donors. He opposed the bipartisan infrastructure bill that benefits rural communities in the district, instead siding with special interests who opposed the bill.

“State Delegate Mizeur is the representative the people of Maryland need. She will protect the voice and vote of every Marylander,” said President of End Citizens United and Let America Vote Tiffany Muller. “While Congressman Harris continues to push dangerous conspiracy theories and do his corporate donors’ bidding, Mizeur will put the people of Maryland above Washington special interests. We’re proud to endorse Heather for Congress.”

“I want to be a Congresswoman for hard-working Maryland families, not corporate America. We need to end dark money, protect the freedom to vote, and ensure corporations aren’t able to buy politicians and elections. End Citizens United and Let America Vote has led the charge on these issues and I am honored to receive their endorsement,” said former Delegate Heather Mizeur.
