A stolen election:

As Democrats fought tooth and nail to make historic gains in 2018, one thing became clear: Republicans know each and every dirty trick to steal elections, and they're not shy about using them.

That's why Democrats are committed to making elections free and fair again, and why I'm leading the charge with a sweeping plan to fix what's broken in our democracy.

Ending dark money thanks to Citizens United. Eliminating partisan gerrymandering. Restoring the Voting Rights Act. Instituting national vote-by-mail. Abolishing the electoral college.

These are just some of the reforms I'm backing, because it's time to literally reboot our democracy.

Want a perfect example? Look no further than Georgia.

Then-Secretary of State Brian Kemp, eyeing a run for governor, purged voters from the rolls and put new voter registrations "on hold".

Tens of thousands of voters, denied their constitutional rights.

While we pass major reforms nationally, we must get to the bottom of potential fraud in Georgia. Sign the petition: tell the Justice Department to immediately investigate.

You know the rest of the story. Intimidation. Suppression tactics. Misinformation.

By all accounts, now-Governor Brian Kemp's team worked hard to steal an election – successfully.

Sign the petition: tell the Justice Department to investigate reports of election fraud in Georgia.

Then let's get to work in Congress by ending Donald Trump's ridiculous shutdown and fixing our democracy.
