Van Hollen said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Free and fair elections are a central principle of our democracy. And yet, secret money from special interests continues to corrupt our elections with no end in sight. As we work to fix this very broken system, at the very least we need a viable campaign watchdog to ensure that candidates and campaigns play by the existing rules. This legislation is a small but important step to put a real referee on the field. It will break the current deadlock and eliminate the partisan divide at the FEC. Together with Senator Udall, I will continue working to overhaul our campaign finance system and root out special interest spending in our elections,” External link

Van Hollen said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Free and fair elections are a central principle of our democracy. And yet, secret money from special interests continues to corrupt our elections with no end in sight. As we work to fix this very broken system, at the very least we need a viable campaign watchdog to ensure that candidates and campaigns play by the existing rules. This legislation is a small but important step to put a real referee on the field. It will break the current deadlock and eliminate the partisan divide at the FEC. Together with Senator Udall, I will continue working to overhaul our campaign finance system and root out special interest spending in our elections,” External link
