Harry Dunn Releases Plan to Protect the People’s Democracy, Earns Endorsement of End Citizens United // Let America Vote in Race for MD-03

ELLICOTT CITY, MD — Today, End Citizens United announced it is endorsing former U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn’s campaign for Congress in Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District. End Citizens United (ECU) is renowned for its tireless efforts to reform our nation’s campaign finance system, advocating for legislation that holds politicians accountable and works towards a government that truly represents the people. The endorsement comes as Dunn has pledged to not accept contributions from corporations and corporate political action committees (PACs).

End Citizens United // Let America Vote, President Tiffany Muller said:

“Harry Dunn defended the Capitol on January 6 from violent insurrectionists, and now he’s fighting to protect our democracy in Congress,” said End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller. “Dunn’s experience as a Capitol Police Officer is driving his deep commitment to safeguarding our democracy, which makes him a natural successor to continue this critical work in Congress. At a time when Republicans are attempting to downplay the severity of January 6 and the ongoing attacks on our democratic process, Harry’s voice and leadership is the perfect counterpunch. We’re proud to endorse Harry and we look forward to helping him win in November.”

Former United States Capitol Police Officer and candidate for Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District, Harry Dunn said:

“I am committed to shoring up the foundations of our democracy in the House of Representatives because the future of our current system is in peril. This moment requires our collective effort and attention and I won’t back down until we pass the reforms outlined in my democracy reform agenda. Congressman John Sarbanes has set a high standard for public service, and I am committed to carrying on his mantle of government reform. I’m honored to be endorsed by End Citizens United // Let America Vote, a group that shares my belief that protecting our democracy is the foremost challenge of our times.”
