Get corporate money out of politics

Corporations aren’t people. They don’t vote, can’t breath, and don’t fight in wars defending our country. We must work to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, but until then we need to elect candidates who will represent real people. I will run my campaign without accepting any donations from corporations.
