Campaign Finance & Election Security

Calling the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. FEC decision one of the most irresponsible in history, Jon is fighting back against outside special interests that try to influence Montana’s elections.

Since the days of the Copper Kings, Montana has rejected the notion that our democracy is for sale. In 2012, nearly 75 percent of Montanans voted to say that corporations should not be able to spend unlimited amounts of money trying to influence our elections.

As a result, Jon is sponsoring multiple bills to shine a light on the dark money groups that tries to influence our elections-including a Constitutional Amendment that overturns Citizens United and declares once and for all that corporations aren’t people.

Jon also voluntarily files his campaign finance reports online, which increases transparency and saves taxpayers money.

Jon is following in the footsteps of the Montanans who over a century ago told corporations that our elections aren’t for sale, and he will work with anyone who is willing to clean up the nation’s broken campaign finance system and return our democracy to the people.
