I’m proud that New Mexico is one of the states pressing Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.
I’ve always said that ending Citizens United is going to take a lot of time and even more grassroots momentum. But right now, the momentum is definitely growing.

With dedicated support from individuals like you, we can keep up the grassroots pressure -- and take back our democratic process from special interest groups spending unlimited, undisclosed cash to influence voters.
Together, we can do this.
Udall has truly been on top of this issue, especially in calling for a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court's decision on Citizens United:
If you would love more information, please contact Senator Udall's office:Sen. Tom Udall continued his efforts to repeal Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision that opened the floodgates for corporate spending in elections.
Udall introduced legislation with Sen. Michael Bennett, D-Colo., that would repeal the decision.
Since Udall seeks to repeal something that was ruled constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, it would take an amendment to the U.S. Constitution — a daunting task that has not been done since 1992.
“James Madison argued that the U.S. Constitution should be amended only on ‘great and extraordinary occasions’,” Udall said in a statement. “I believe we have reached one of those occasions. Our elections no longer focus on the best ideas, but the biggest bank accounts, and Americans’ right to free speech should not be determined by their net worth. I am proud to be introducing this amendment to change the way we do business in Washington and get money out of a broken system that puts special interest over people.”
Udall was joined by Bennett and Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., at the press conference announcing the legislation. - New Mexico Telegraph, 6/18/13
Also Udall recently expressed his gratitude for all the support from constituents regarding the recent death of his cousin, Randy Udall:
My family and I are moved by the overwhelming support and condolences for my cousin Randy Udall. He was an extraordinary person who touched so many lives with his spirit, his intelligence and his example.
His death is a tremendous loss, and we will miss him more than I can express. There was no one like him.
Randy and I were especially close. We shared a love of the mountains and a passion for the wonders of the West, particularly the Wind River Mountains where we hiked and fished together nearly every summer for three decades.
He died doing what he loved, and that is a blessing.
