I support improving and empowering our current enforcement agencies but I do not support the creation of new enforcement agencies.

Additional Comments
I am a write-in candidate who believes Citizens United must not only be overturned, but limits must be established on campaign time frames. It's ludicrous that Our elected officials spend virtually their entire terms fundraising and campaigning.

Additional Comments
Question 10: Russ believes that the most likely and best path to overturning Citizens United is to change the make-up of the court and bring a case challenging this lawless decision. Russ believes that the energy and organizing around the movement for an amendment has been positive, as more and more citizens have become involved in the movement for campaign finance.
