We have some big news!! 7,764. Seven thousand, seven hundred and sixty four. That's how many of you signed my petition. When I started this campaign over a year ago, critics said we’d never even make the ballot. Fortunately I didn’t listen to the critics, I listened to the people! I knew it would take an incredible amount of effort, but I knew it could be done and we did it. 34% more than the required 5,801 signatures. This validates what we have been saying all along. If we work together, we can achieve it. We do not need corporate donors, we don't need PAC money. We need the people, we need passion, and we need to do the work. August is FAST approaching. Will you help me win this race? Skip that morning latte and donate that $5 to my campaign That goes towards travel and marketing, two important things that help to spread my message.

My story is the quintessential American Story. My journey is your journey. I was born and raised in Arkansas, the youngest of four girls raised by a single parent. My mom worked two or three jobs to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I remember her always being tired, so tired. But even three jobs were not enough to afford health insurance, so my mother lived in constant fear, knowing we were one ER visit or serious illness away from being homeless.
Campaign finance reform is a must. Citizens United was a disastrous 2010 Supreme Court decision that allowed big business to pour unlimited money into the political landscape, eroding the power of the people and giving special interests a direct highway to influencing our government. Corporations want there to be only one way into Washington, and it’s a toll road.
