From Maryland to South Dakota, Voters Say No To Big Money

While the country is rightly focused on the stunning election of Donald Trump on Tuesday, here’s an under-the-radar trend worth taking notice of. Voters in places big and small–red states and blue states–approved important ballot initiatives aimed at reducing the power of big money and strengthening our democracy.

The power of money’s role in politics is an issue that crosses party lines, and these victories last night to strengthen our democracy show people want action to create a democracy that works for everyone.
