Val Demings, Marco Rubio, and the filibuster

If Democrats are going to deliver on the promises we've made to the American people, we need institutions that respect the will of the people.

In short, when the people vote, Congress should act. Archaic rules like the filibuster shouldn't stop Congress from taking big, bold, progressive action.

And that's one big reason that Rep. Val Demings is running for the US Senate against Senator Marco Rubio. Here's what she recently had to say:

The filibuster threatens the freedoms of every American, no matter the color of your skin, your gender, ZIP code, political party, or how much money you have (or don't have) in the bank.

The filibuster doesn't just mean a minority of senators can block critical legislation on everything from voting rights to the minimum wage.

The filibuster undermines the basic principle that makes our democracy work: government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Let's help Val fire up her campaign and send Marco Rubio packing! Chip in $3 before our midnight deadline on July 31.
