Money in Politics

Big-money special interests dominate Texas government, undermining democracy in Texas. Many Texans today don't vote or participate, believing special interests run the state. Talented candidates don't run, unable to compete without personal wealth or special interest backers. Most legislative elections don't offer voters a choice in candidates, with incumbents running unopposed or grossly outspending their challengers.

Public Citizen is working with a coalition of groups in the state to ensure that the playing field in Texas is fair. Campaign finance reform is a top priority of these groups.

Because Public Citizen does not accept funds from corporations, professional associations or government agencies, we can remain independent and follow the truth wherever it may lead. But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
