Tulsi Gabbard on Rejecting Corporate Donations / PAC Free
- Since first running for Congress, Tulsi has refused donations from large industries such as Wall Street, Big Pharma, Tobacco, Liquor, etc.
- Tulsi is also a PAC free candidate, relying exclusively on individual donations to fund her political campaigns
- Tulsi has been endorsed by End Citizens United: “As a member of the No PAC Caucus, Congresswoman Gabbard is championing reforms to fix the broken campaign finance system and get Big Money out of politics. She is a dedicated reformer fighting on behalf of Hawaiians, and understands that Washington works best when every voice is heard — not just the wealthiest ones,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller.
- ECU is a grassroots organization fighting to get big money out of our elections
- “I've decided to stop accepting PAC/lobbyist $$. Bottom line: we can't allow our future to be driven and shaped by special interests.” https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/865708366814949377
- “I'm so thankful for receiving 84% of the vote in a 3-way democratic primary. Our campaign is powered completely by the people - no PAC money - showing what’s possible when people come together. We need leaders who are of the people, by the people, and for the people!” https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/1028780356420296704
- “The presence of PAC money in our political system has put corporations and special interests ahead of the people who elect us to serve.” https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/914177921589432321
- “Every member of Congress should refuse PAC money. We must devote our energy to solving the problems that affect millions of people, not ignoring those problems to protect corporations' bottom lines.” https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/933417303936552962
- "I’m honored to receive the endorsement of @StopBigMoney. I don’t take PAC contributions, because the only way to restore public faith in our democracy is with citizen-led, grassroots-funded campaigns. That’s why I’m running, and why I rely on your support.” https://twitter.com/TulsiGabbard/status/992469901301477377
