CANDIDATE FOR Missouri congressional district 2
John Messmer is running as a Democrat in the race to represent the people of Missouri's 2nd congressional district. John earned a PhD in Political Science from the University of Missouri - Columbia, and his campaign is focused primarily on government reform. His 15-Point Plan tackles the campaign finance, election, and ethics reforms that are necessary to provide Americans with the representation and public policy they deserve.
"Political campaigns in America have become absurd competitions for funding. Those who raise the most money are the most likely to win. And most of the money is coming from big-moneyed interests. Donors know what they’re doing: they’re buying access to Congress. And with that access they are being rewarded handsomely. The disastrous Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court made a bad situation worse. We currently have a system where one’s political worth is equal to their net worth. That, by definition, is a corruption. My plan is to lead the charge to reform our campaign finance system."
