  •  Ms. Marshall... (7+ / 0-)

    ...if elected to the Senate, what action will you pledge to take in order to ensure that the 600,000 disenfranchised residents of the District of Columbia get the full and equal representation in both houses of Congress that we're entitled to as American citizens?

    Will you introduce a bill granting full statehood to DC?

    Will you press for that bill on television? On the Senate floor? On the campaign trail over the next nine months?

    Will you publicly call out colleagues who fail to stand for all Americans' civil rights?

    All we DC residents seem to get are platitudes and non-specifics. Full representation for DC doesn't even show up on the priorities list for Congressional Democrats. Will you pledge to reverse this and give us action rather than just another ignored plank in a platform?

    Call Congress and demand 2 Senators, 1 VOTING Rep, and full home rule for DC citizens. Anything less is un-American.
