The real problem with our political system is that statewide and Congressional candidates are for sale. I was the prime sponsor on the GMO labeling bill this year, running into out of state corporate lobbyists for Monsanto and others who were able to must opposition from both Republicans and Democrats. I prime sponsored a bill to open broadband up to free market competition, and telecom lobbyists showed up in opposition, eventually tabling the issue on the floor of the House. $6.5 million in out of state "dark money" is going into statewide races, including millions to the two executive councilors I'm running against. We've got to combat the corruption--not run this as a horse race every year.
