In response to reports that Hillary Clinton will pledge to introduce an amendment to overturn Citizens United and related decisions in the first 30 days of her administration, Marge Baker, Executive Vice President at People For the American Way, issued the following statement:

“Plenty of politicians talk the talk about taking on the challenges of big money in our democracy, but Hillary Clinton is showing us that she’ll walk the walk. This is a crystal clear indication that Hillary Clinton absolutely understands the gravity of the problem and will make the fight for a democracy for all the people a top issue in her administration.

“Americans overwhelmingly favor common sense reforms, including amending the Constitution, to make sure our government is one of, by and for the people—not just wealthy corporations and special interests. Momentum is building in the movement to restore our democracy, and voters across the ideological spectrum who care about protecting the core values of our democracy should cheer Secretary Clinton’s announcement."
