The Badger State continues to be a hotbed for reform. There, grassroots movements are thriving in communities- 108 to be exact.
With the addition of Liberty Grove, that’s the number of Wisconsin communities who have called for a referendum.
This referendum would allow voters to determine whether the state should call for a constitutional amendment to address campaign finance reform. There are 19 other states who have made similar calls.
Door County United to Amend, which is coordinating the charge there, said in a release that it hopes the amendment would address “dark money spent by super-PAC groups to attack candidates and influence voters and elected officials.”
The college home of Take Back Our Republic Executive Director, John Pudner, Wisconsin has historically been a tremendous indicator of national political movements. Now, we see that, once again, Wisconsin is at the forefront of the winds of change.
