FROM THE CANDIDATE

“Kill the filibuster. Statehood for DC. Climate action for all.”

On abolishing the Electoral College: “It ought to be one person, one vote. The fastest way for this to happen is for other states to join Washington in a contract that we will vote our electoral ballots the way the popular vote goes, nationally. As soon as you get to a majority of states, you wouldn’t need a constitutional amendment.

“Republican national voter suppression efforts, which has degraded voter turnout in communities of color across the country, illustrates the necessity of national mail-in paper ballots, mailed to voters 3+ weeks before Election Day. My state has adopted automatic voter registration, all mail-in paper ballot voting, with pre-paid postage, and it is a model for the country.”

““Today I am challenging Donald Trump on his favorite show to release his tax returns like I did this morning. It is time for him to come clean with the American people.

“Mitch McConnell destroyed Americans’ faith in the Supreme Court to be fair and representative body by stealing a seat from Barack Obama and refusing to give Merrick Garland even a hearing. We must be thoughtful and considerate about any changes to the Supreme Court, but we also need to restore Americans’ faith in the court and restore the balance that McConnell broke. I’m open to any ideas and discussion on how to reset that balance.”

On judicial independence: “The first thing that I would look for is a sharp practitioner of law, who understands law. They have to understand the historical place of the judicial system in American democracy … I will look for people that will understand that critical nature that you have to stand up for our civil liberties, against sometimes the majority. I would look for diversity because we want more diversity throughout our democracy.”

The filibuster allows Mitch McConnell to block any progress in this country, from action on gun violence to climate change. It must be eliminated.
