DES MOINES, IA–Today, Michael Franken, Democratic candidate for US Senate in Iowa issued the following statement.
“I am very proud to say that my campaign to unseat Chuck Grassley does not take corporate and Super PAC money. I believe that Super PACs in particular, have no business in this primary election. Iowans deserve to know that not every Democratic candidate shares this perspective. Iowans also need to know which elected official is susceptible to the power of corporate money in their decision-making. One of the first and most disastrous attacks on our democracy was the Citizens United decision of 2010, and we cannot allow special interests and dark money to rig this primary election. I call on my primary opponents to refuse corporate and Super PAC money in this election; Our democracy depends on it.” said Franken.
