URGENT: Vote is Today (From BoldProgressives.Org)

Today, the Senate will vote on the Disclose Act -- a first step toward reversing the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.
Over 30,000 PCCC members have pushed for this campaign finance reform in the last week -- and now Elizabeth Warren has joined the fight!
Warren's opponent, Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), was the deciding vote that killed the Disclose Act in 2010. In a statement, Warren said:
"Citizens United unleashed a wave of special interest spending that threatens to drown out the voices of middle class families. The Disclose Act will provide accountability, requiring that those who fund political advertising make their support public....It's time for Republicans to stop protecting their influential friends by helping them hide their influence from the public."
As our numbers grow, we are keeping members of Congress updated on our momentum. When you sign up, we'll let you know some next steps you can take to make a difference in this fight for fundamental campaign finance reform.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
