Then (October 2018):

“Former Army Ranger and first-time candidate Jason Crow today led an unprecedented coalition of over 100 House challengers to call on Congress to make a government and election reform bill the first item on the agenda for the next Congress in 2019.”

Now (January 2019):
After getting sworn-in, one of the very first pieces of legislation Representative Crow co-sponsored was the For the People Act (H.R. 1). By supporting this once-in-a-generation legislation, Rep. Crow is delivering on his campaign promise to end the dominance of big money, root out corruption, strengthen our democracy, and restore faith in government.

John Sarbanes, a Maryland Democrat.”
