A Message From Congressman Sarbanes
I am proud to be leading the charge in Congress to limit the influence of Big Money on politics and government and amplify the voices of everyday Americans. Whether it’s the economy, energy and the environment, health care or any other critical issue, special interests and well-connected insiders are calling the shots in Washington. We need to return to a government of, by and for the people. That’s why I’ve introduced the Government By the People Act.

Last month, I made it official - I’m running for re-election.
But it’s not worth doing unless I do it on my own terms. First and foremost, that means sticking with my pledge to not take a dime of PAC money. I’m the longest-serving PAC-free member of Congress in the country - this will be my fourth consecutive campaign where I say “no” to the PACs because I want to power my re-election with grassroots donors, not special interests.

Like all Americans, I am shocked by the violence that occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday night. My heart goes out to the victims of this despicable act, and I offer my sincerest condolences to their loved ones. We are so grateful for the countless individuals—both first responders and everyday citizens—who sacrificed their own safety to rescue others. They represent the best of who we are.

I want to send my sincere condolences to the victims of the violent acts perpetrated by white nationalists in Charlottesville this past weekend. Like many Americans, I am deeply disturbed by the events that took place. They are an ugly reminder of the racism, anti-Semitism and bigotry that continue to exist in American society. As a response to these dark and hateful forces, we must recommit ourselves to preserving our core American values and to fighting the hatred and extremism of white nationalist groups.
