Standing Up Against Special Interests and for Minnesota
Debra Hilstrom is an advocate who gets results for people. As a state legislator, Debra authored and passed legislation to protect consumers from rip-offs by credit card companies and banks, homeowners from unfair treatment from mortgage lenders, children from abuse by sexual predators, and women from domestic abuse. As an Anoka county prosecutor, Debra holds criminals who exploit the elderly accountable for their wrongs.
Citizen's United threatens to drown out the voices of regular people in elections. I was one of only 16 House Democrats who voted "no" this year to letting corporations spend unlimited amounts of money to throw parties for legislators and their staffs. As Secretary of State, I will do everything possible to challenge Citizen's United and limit the role of corporations and special interests in our elections.
