Amy Klobuchar


FROM THE CANDIDATE

Our democracy doesn’t work if we can’t protect and expand the right to vote. Loved spending time with @MoveOn at the #BigIdeas Forum today to talk about some of my big ideas: registering everyone to vote at 18, restoring voting rights and stopping voter suppression.”

“Just another example to show that the citizenship census question was added for purely political reasons.  The Supreme Court should not allow this charade to continue.

“We need the truth and we need to protect our democracy — and neither should be partisan. Yet, the White House made calls to shut down my Secure Elections Act. No matter what, I’m going to keep fighting for answers and working to protect our elections.

via Twitter

“I’ve been leading the charge to create automatic voter registration, implement nationwide same-day registration, and protect our elections from foreign interference. I don’t believe these should be partisan priorities — our democracy is for everyone. Let’s get it done.

“We must reauthorize the Voting Rights Act and pass my bill to register every single kid when they turn eighteen.

“Facebook removed over 2 billion bots in just the first quarter. We need to pass my Honest Ads Act to provide transparency on political social media ads so Americans know exactly who is trying to influence our elections.

via Twitter

“Today I went to the floor to get a vote on my backup paper ballot secure elections amendment which is cosponsored by dozens of Senators. The republicans blocked it. They don’t even want to vote on it. What (or who) are they afraid of?”

via Twitter

“That is why I have joined my colleagues in cosponsoring the For the People Act, which would require independent state commissions to draw district lines..Partisan gerrymandering undermines the principles of our democracy.”
