“In America, elected officials should be beholden to the people – not cryptocurrency billionaires. Today, Jonathan Jackson confirmed that two Super PACs are heavily investing in his campaign because they know he will protect their self-interest over the average Illinoisan,” said Ald. Pat Dowell, candidate for Congress in the 1st District.
“There are two candidates in this race being backed by dark money. While they are focused on protecting the special interests of their billionaire donors, I’m focused on voters who have trusted me for more than a decade to deliver real results. I’m ready on day one to address the needs of the people: protecting voting rights, keeping our children safe, creating solutions to lower the costs of gas and groceries, and fostering economic development. And I will vote to end Citizens United so dark money is never a problem in Congressional races again. I remain unbought and unbossed, and the only candidate in this race the people can trust to work for them.”
