Milwaukee – Today, Wisconsin U.S. Senate candidate, Alex Lasry, released his plan for strengthening American Democracy. The plan calls for multiple reforms including ending the filibuster, enacting automatic voter registration, banning political gerrymandering, and reforming the Electoral Count Act, among other policy proposals.

“One year ago, our country witnessed something that has never been seen in the United States – a sitting President and his followers attempted to disrupt and even stop the peaceful transfer of power,” said Lasry.  While their tyrannical attempt to overthrow our government failed, the continued assault on the very fundamental tenets of American democracy has not ended.

“We must recommit ourselves to maintaining an electoral system where every citizen can cast their ballot easily and securely. And every citizen must have confidence that every one of those votes will be counted.”

Lasry plan focuses on protecting and enhancing voting and preserving American democracy by:

  • Ending the Filibuster;
  • Expanding Voting rights by passing the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act;
  • Making it easier to vote thru Automatic Voter Registration and guaranteeing everyone their right to vote;
  • Banning political gerrymandering;
  • Reforming the Electoral Count Act;
  • Curtailing the influence of special Interests by increasing transparency;
  • Strengthening election security and ending foreign interference;
  • Promoting democracy abroad;
  • Supporting DC statehood and letting Puerto Rico self determine; and most importantly
  • Voting Ron Johnson out of office

Lasry’s full plan can be found online here: www.alexlasry.com/democracy.

The Democratic Primary Election for the United States Senate will be held Tuesday, August 9th, 2022. For more information about Alex Lasry’s campaign, visit www.alexlasry.com.

    It is nice to see Mr. Lasry espousing such sensible ideas. Maybe in a decade or so, he can claim to be a good Wisconsinite Democrat, and maybe a decade or so after that, a Wisconsin Democrat leader. He’s young, there is no need to rush. Time is the best test of his intentions.

  2. NieWiederKrieg says:

    Lasry says he wants to “promote democracy abroad”. That’s just what we need. A war mongering, blood thirsty US Senator from Wisconsin who wants to start 20 more wars around the world and drop bombs on millions of women and children.

    What the heck happened to the Democratic Party? 90% of their time and effort is focused on starting wars.
