Cisneros is refusing to take corporate PAC money
End Citizens United // Let America Vote today endorsed Jessica Cisneros for Congress in Texas’ 28th congressional district.
Cisneros has been a leader in protecting the freedom to vote and making sure our government works for the people. She’s been outspoken about reducing the influence that corporate special interests have over politicians in Washington and in South Texas, highlighting how Big Pharma and Big Oil are able to buy elected officials to make hard-working Texans pay more at the pump and for life-saving prescription drugs. She’s pushed back on attempts to restrict the freedom to vote, supporting critical anti-corruption and voting rights legislation, and speaking out against Texas’ extremist, un-American, anti-voter bill. Cisneros is refusing to take corporate PAC money, so she is accountable only to the people of Texas, not a corporate board room.
“Jessica Cisneros is a champion when it comes to getting big money out of politics and fighting for the people of Texas. From her time as an attorney representing the underserved, to her leadership in fighting back against laws that restrict the freedom to vote in Texas, Cisneros has always worked to ensure that every Texan can make their voice heard,” said President of End Citizens United and Let America Vote Tiffany Muller. “She’ll work every day for Texas families in Congress and we are thrilled to endorse her.”
“End Citizens United and Let America Vote are leading the charge to get big money out of politics and stop corporations and corrupt, wealthy billionaires from buying our elections, which I am excited to continue in Congress. I have refused to take corporate PAC money or contributions from lobbyists and I am committed to getting big money out of politics to return the power to the people.I am honored to have ECU // LAV’s endorsement, and look forward to working with them to hold people in power accountable and make these reforms a reality,” said Jessica Cisneros.
ECU // LAV is a leading anti-corruption and voting rights group. The grassroots-funded political action committee raised and spent $65.5 million in the 2020 election cycle to elect candidates fighting to limit the influence of big money in politics and protect the freedom to vote. ECU // LAV has more than four million members nationwide, including nearly 154,000 in Texas.
