Jan Ting on Government Reform

 


Lobbyists should not be allowed to donate to legislators

TING: I'm outraged at the campaign financing system which allows a 1st-term Senator like Tom Carper to raise millions of dollars from special interests and lobbyists, including Jack Abramoff & his clients. It's an outrage that people whose profession is affecting our legislation are allowed to give money to our legislators. If you think it's ok, support Tom Carper. If you want change, vote for Jan Ting.

CARPER: I've never received any money from clients of Jack Abramoff and I hope Mr. Ting knows that

Pledges not to serve more than two six-year terms

All three [Republican Senate primary candidates] brandish conservative credentials. They agree taxes should not be raised. They think U.S. troops should stay in Iraq until its government is stable. And all have pledged not to serve more than two six-year terms.
