ZERO Republicans voted for voting rights

On Tuesday, every single Senate Republican voted to block the For the People Act, a bill to stop the attacks on voting rights, end partisan gerrymandering and stop billionaires from buying elections. It would have expanded voter access, election integrity and security, campaign finance, and ethics for the three branches of government

Every single Republican sided with super PACs over the American people. It's downright shameful and a significant threat to our representative democracy.

We know whose side Congressional Republicans are on, and it's not on the side of the people. Republicans like Kevin McCarthy and Ted Cruz oppose the For the People Act because they don't want to play by the same rules as everyone else. They want super PACs to continue spending unlimited amounts of dark money to boost candidates like Peter's opponent Alek Skarlatos, just as they did in the last election. They made it the most expensive Congressional race in Oregon history!

We must fight back. Chip in $5 for our critical end-of-quarter deadline to reelect Peter, who will always protect Americans' right to vote.

The fight to protect voting rights and take on dark money super PACs is far from over. Peter is going to continue working with his colleagues to get comprehensive voting rights legislation passed before the next election. Our democracy literally hangs in the balance.

Help us fight back against big money super PACs and chip in $5 for our critical end-of-quarter deadline.

Nothing is more critical to our democracy than our Constitutional right to vote. We must do everything in our power to protect it.
