Strengthening Our Democracy

Tipping the balance of power back to working people in the United States will demand bold reforms to strengthen our democracy. Tim has long fought to get money out of politics and ensure that our government works on behalf of working people—not just corporations and the wealthy and well-connected.

He’s cosponsored and repeatedly voted for legislation that would roll back the Citizens United decision, require dark money groups to disclose their donors, and end the influence of corporate special interests on our elections.

And while Ohioans speak out against partisan gerrymanders that dilute the voice of communities of color and voting restrictions that keep people of color, people with disabilities, working-class people, students, veterans, and seniors from the ballot box, Tim is pushing to pass critical legislation to restore the Voting Rights Act—and calling on the Senate to abolish the filibuster in order to get the job done.
