David Trone on Government Reform

 

 


Citizen's United must be overturned; we need transparency

I have learned firsthand the problems with political donations. That's why I refuse to accept money from PACs or lobbyists.˙We need to overturn Citizens United and enact reform for more transparency. It's unacceptable that PACs can raise millions of dollars, and we don't know who they are.˙We need to make it easier for everyone who wants to serve and get rid of special interests. The only special interests politicians should care about are yours.

PVS:Regulate campaign donations from corporations.

Trone supports the PVS survey question on regulating campaign donations

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
