There is an old saying, “He who pays the piper calls the tune.” By not taking any corporate or special interest money, Andrew Romanoff is demonstrating his focus will be the citizens he represents. What a great message Colorado can send to the country! It’s not that corporations and special interest groups are bad, they can be very good, but they should not have undue influence on politicians. However, politicians can feel they need to favor where they can fund their campaigns, since their opponent will already be playing that game and will have tremendous amounts of money. Perhaps this is why “politician” has gotten a bad reputation. Andrew Romanoff is very unusual in his commitment to straightforward repesentation of and for the people with no other strings attached.
Beyond this, Speaker Romanoff is a highly skilled, intelligent, knowledgeable, and passionate candidate for the office of the U.S. Senate. You can read more of his background at andrewromanoff.com.
