Who is with me? ($500 is a lot of money for me. I'm poor.)

We need meaningful election reform NOW!! How can we get a senator to sponsor this? If they won't listen to our begging, will they listen to money?

If we get a senate sponsor for the Holt Bill, we'll have something real to rally around. Without it, we are spinning our wheels.

Sponsor: Rep Holt, Rush D. (introduced 2/2/2005) Cosponsors (159)
