  • Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Cal Cunningham says he’ll fight for fair and secure elections and to scale back the influence of corporate political donations if he wins next year.

  • The former state legislator and Iraq War veteran unveiled on Wednesday reforms that jibe with his priority to fight “rampant corruption” in Washington.

  • Cunningham wants greater disclosure by super PACs and other independent expenditure groups. He supports a five-year waiting period before outgoing members of Congress and presidential Cabinets can be lobbyists.

  • He also wants to reinstate U.S. Justice Department review of election law changes in areas with histories of discrimination.

  • Nonpartisan redistricting and aggressive monitoring of overseas interference of U.S. elections also make Cunningham’s to-do list.
