Newsletter: Republican Primaries Canceled

There are two political narratives in American politics: One side with a million reasons to “impeach 45.” The other side with a million reasons why calls for impeachment are just another partisan sham.

Anyone who strays outside that narrative, including the 66% of voters who no longer trust either party, risk being sidelined. Voters deserve more choices.

That is why the Independent Voter Project just filed another amicus brief in support of Level the Playing Field’s lawsuit against the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates to open the debates and let voters hear from a third (or fourth?) candidate.

That is why IVP is suing the California secretary of state to open the presidential primaries as the state constitution requires, to make sure ALL voters have a chance to cast a vote.

More choice. Greater competition for voters.

If you haven’t already, will you consider joining our monthly giving program? We rely on the support of independent-minded voters like you to challenge the rules that prevent voices from outside the two-sided narrative from being heard.
