Joe Neguse on Government Reform

 

 


Ensure every voter's voice, despite Russian interference

Q: What do you view as the biggest threat to national security and how would you try to safeguard against it?

Joe Neguse: We face many national security threats, but one threat I am particularly concerned about is Russian interference in our elections. As the co-founder of our state's largest youth voter non-profit organization, I have spent much of my career working to ensure that every voter has a voice in our elections, as is essential to a thriving democracy. Russian's attempted interference into and influence of our election process and systems threatens the foundation of our democracy--fair and free elections. As a member of Congress, I will fight against this interference by supporting continued sanctions against Russia, working with the US intelligence community to further guard against such interference in the future, and supporting the integrity of each states' voting system through increased funding for system advancement and security.

Neguse 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."
