The Better Way: Fair Elections Gains Momentum
Date:10/27/2009

s would create a voluntary system in which candidates could run for office on a mix of small donations and public funding. Candidates would qualify for the public grant by collecting a set number of contributions of $100 or less. Qualified candidates could also supplement the grant with small donations of $100 or less from people in their states that would be matched 4-to-1 by a new Fair Elections fund.

The size of the grant, coupled with the matching fund system, provides candidates with enough resources to mount competitive campaigns without relying on special interests or donations from those with business before Congress. The bipartisan Fair Elections Now Act is sponsored in the Senate by Assistant Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (D-Conn.) in the House.

The Fair Elections Now Act has 108 sponsors in the House who cover a wide spectrum of states; newly elected and veteran members; conservative, moderates, and liberals; and rank-and-file as well as leadership members. A broad base coalition is advocating for the bill. More information on the coalition, the Fair Elections Now Act, and an up to date list of co-sponsors can be found at www.fairelectionsnow.org.
