"As a public official, I am committed to addressing the influence of corporate constitutional rights and big money in politics. These issues undermine the fairness and integrity of our democratic process. I will prioritize several key actions: I will work with colleagues to advocate for legislative reforms that limit the undue influence of corporations in our political system. This includes supporting measures to restore campaign finance regulations that prioritize transparency and accountability. I will actively support grassroots movements and organizations that are dedicated to campaign finance reform and ending corporate influence in politics. These groups play a crucial role in raising awareness and advocating for change at the local, state, and national levels. I will push for the expansion of public financing options for political campaigns. By reducing the reliance on big money donors, we can ensure that elected officials are accountable to their constituents rather than special interests. I will work to enhance transparency in political donations and lobbying activities. Citizens have the right to know who is funding political campaigns and influencing policy decisions. I will engage with corporations to promote responsible practices regarding their political spending and ensure they operate in ways that align with the public interest. By taking these steps, I aim to restore trust in our democratic institutions and ensure that government represents the interests of all citizens, not just the wealthy few. Ending corporate constitutional rights and reducing the influence of big money in politics is essential for creating a fair and equitable democracy where every voice can be heard."

"Campaign finance reform is a key issue for me. It’s one that should be bi-partisan. I’d like change the dress code of the chamber and force everyone to wear on their uniforms who supports them financially like NASCAR and I’m serious about that, people should know who funds each and every single one of them. I also believe prohibiting foreign interests funding our elections and influencing the population the way they want to. Also prohibiting cracking down on slander made by big corporation dark money groups about the candidate’s opponents."

"As you may be aware, I have been a member of Move to Amend for quite a few years. Though not an active member for most of that time, my views have not changed. I will do everything I can to end corporate personhood and influence in our elections, our culture and the influence they have over elected officials. When I'm elected, I will work with my fellow legislators to pass measures which aim to do this. I would support a constitutional amendment, as well.

"I will support expanding the public subsidy amount for candidates who pledge not to take large donations and placing limits on campaign spending. Candidates for public office shouldn’t have to spend all their time courting donors and instead be able to focus on the voters and important issues. We should provide public funding to candidates endorsed by a major party while at the same time restricting the amount of outside donations they can accept. "

I will encourage Ohio's federal elected officials to keep fighting this fight in Congress until we finally pass the We the People Amendment—and I will proudly support candidates who support this legislation as much as I do!

"I believe that for too long our government and policy direction has been controlled by corrupt politicians and the dark money coming from large corporations and private interest groups. This is not some well-kept secret. It is obvious to everyone that the people who are supposed to represent us in government have been bought and are influenced to guide policy to certain outcomes. The Citizens United ruing made it clear that corporations and millionaires are more important to our judges and elected officials than their own constituent's well-being and livelihood. I will use my public office once elected to the U.S House of Representatives to support the Movement to Amend the Constitution. The need for this Amendment is clear and we cannot as a country say that we value our citizens over corporations until we have rectified this injustice. Aside from supporting this Amendment, I support an overhaul of our campaign finance laws to include decreasing the amount of money PACs, corporations and individuals can contribute to political candidates. This will ensure that support for candidates is truly organically generated from their communities and constituents rather than allowing our elections to remain in the hands of a select few wealthy individuals. I am steadfastly committed to serving as a voice for everyday middle- and lower-class families. I believe strongly in putting people over profits and ensuring that our government works for its citizens rather than for lifeless corporate entities. I will work across party lines in Congress to ensure fairness in our democratic voting process, and to ensure that citizens of the 8th district have their voices heard in Washington, D.C. We must remind lawmakers that we are not just numbers on a spreadsheet and that the choices our representatives make have real life or death consequences for their constituents at home. "

"The Supreme Court created all the problems of $s in politics by declaring corporations (et.al.) people with rights and narrowing the clear 18th century common law definition of Bribery to a meaningless Quid Pro Quo impossible to prove. Now they are almost daily reversing well established precedents. The sum of their transgressions are a cancer that metastasizing our representative democracy into a corporate fascist state. Article 3 Section 1 says "Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour...". It says that, just as we hired them, we can fire them. This can be done, and their unsupported Precedents reversed, by 51 true blue Senators."

"I will support legislation that eliminates unlimited PAC spending in elections and work to curtail lobbyist influence and stop regulatory capture in our state. As a candidate in a rural area, I know corporate spending has hurt our communities, stripping small businesses and family farms of their ability to build a better future for themselves and their children. I'll fight for rural Minnesotans, and against policies that favor artificial entities and profit-seeking over we the people."

"Every election cycle, billionaires and special interest groups pour massive amounts of dark money into our political system. The disastrous Citizens United decision has enabled ultra-wealthy donors to drown out the voices of ordinary American voters. My DISCLOSE Act would require organizations spending money in elections to disclose donors who have given $10,000 or more during an election cycle. The American people deserve transparency. We must bring donors out of the shadows and prevent foreign money from anonymously influencing our elections and courts. "

"I will work with my colleagues to address this issue. For example, I will fight to reshape the way the election campaigns are financed. I believe that Citizen United was a blow to democracy that gave too much power to wealthy political donors, companies and entities and has resulted in the political dysfunction in our society. I will work hard for campaign finance reform. I support small donor public financing nationwide. The integrity of our democratic process demands nothing less."
