Council Member Casar is a leading anti-corruption advocate who has always stood up for the people of Texas. He is rejecting corporate PAC money, so that he will be accountable only to Texas voters, not corporate special interests looking to buy access and influence in Washington. As a member of the City Council, he put more money in the pockets of the people of Austin by doubling the minimum wage for city employees and authoring the law to require paid sick leave.

“Time and again, Greg Casar has proven that he is a champion for Texas families, working tirelessly to improve their lives and make sure that everyday Texans have a voice in their government. He’ll continue that leadership in Congress by fighting to stop corporate special interests from dominating our politics and working to create good-paying jobs for the people of Texas,” said End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller. “We are thrilled to endorse Greg Casar and look forward to getting him elected to Congress.”

“Texas working families need a representative who will show up and fight for them—someone who will stand up to corporate special interests,” said Greg Casar, progressive candidate for TX-35. “I’m honored to receive the support of End Citizens United // Let America Vote and look forward to working with them to turn out Texans to vote on March 1st. Together, we can deliver real progress for working families from San Antonio to Austin.”
