Progressive Turnout Project Praises Sen. Gillibrand’s Plan to Protect Our Democracy
Progressive Turnout Project Executive Director Alex Morgan released the following statement:
“Senator Gillibrand’s Plan to Protect our Democracy and Tackle Corruption in Washington is a bold and comprehensive approach to defending and expanding the power of voters, and bringing ethics and transparency to the White House. She’s building upon an already impressive Clean Elections Plan and proving she’s serious about fixing our broken system of government.”
“With this proposal, Sen. Gillibrand has taken another big step in the competition of ideas to see who has the best policy proposals and the strongest commitment to protecting our democracy.”
“The American people know that until we limit the influence of special interests and return power to the people, we won’t be able to properly address any other big issues like healthcare, gun violence, or climate change. Fortunately, our Democratic candidates are listening and we have seen comprehensive proposals from Sen. Michael Bennet, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. We hope that all candidates will engage in this important debate with big and bold democracy reform proposals of their own.”
“Progressive Turnout Project does not plan to endorse candidates in the 2020 primary. We are proud to have a strong field of candidates who are bringing democracy reform and voting rights issues to the forefront of the debate. We believe democracy reform is the only way to deliver a better, stronger democracy for the American people.
