Eldridge wants to reduce influence of money in politics




Conner Eldridge, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, touts today a web video that illustrates a key difference with Republican incumbent Sen. John Boozman: Money in politics.

Eldridge cites:

* The $3 million in PAC contributions Boozman has received as a candidate.

* Boozman’s vote against the Disclose Act, which would require disclosure of sources of money spent by independent political groups.

* Boozman’s refusal to join efforts to repeal Citizens United, which opened the floodgates on corporate spending in political races.

Eldridge said he’d vote to overturn Citizens United and to end secret dark money spending in political races. “No one is going to buy me,” he says.

Money in politics? Republicans think it’s more important to shut down the Clinton Foundation, lest money spent by corporate interests finds its way to charitable use. For Boozman, dark money charity begins at home. And he wants to keep it that way.
