Join me in my hearty endorsement of Abby Finenauer for U.S. Senate in Iowa. She’s an amazing candidate with the drive, grit, determination, and passion for Iowa.

I’m proud to endorse Trudy Busch Valentine. The reason is simple; whether we like how power works or not, she represents our best hope of restoring honor to Missouri’s place in the United States Senate. The Republican field is utterly lacking honor.

Since Citizen’s United became the law of the land, we’ve seen a new type of political action committee emerge called the SuperPAC, a tool that allows for the ultra-rich to donate hundreds of millions, even billions of dollars every political cycle. That is, a few wealthy individuals can have a greater influence on elections with their money than We the People can with our vote. This has undermined the core principle of American democracy, that “we hold these truths to be self-evident that all [people] are created equal.”
