Deb Haaland on Government Reform

 

 


Won't take PAC money; will fight to overturn Citizens United

I am the only candidate who hasn't written myself a big check because I think Democrats should lead by example when it comes to taking big money out of politics. I'm running my campaign by building a grassroots team of supporters. Our campaign finance system is broken--it only helps those at the top. I know the struggles of New Mexico families because I've lived them, and you have my word: I will not accept contributions from corporate PACs, and I will fight to overturn Citizens United.

Fight for government transparency and accountability

I will hold Trump and his billionaire friends accountable--whether it's standing up to his racist bullying, fighting for his billionaire friends to pay their fair share, or calling for impeachment. I will fight against the demagoguery represented by the current administration, and do everything in my power to create greater transparency in our government. I am not afraid to stand up to the NRA, the arms industry, big pharma, or the fossil fuel industry on behalf of everyday people.

PVS:Regulate campaign donations from corporations.

Haaland supports the PVS survey question on regulating campaign donations

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
