Hillary Clinton will promise Saturday to introduce a constitutional amendment intended to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision within the first month of taking office if she is elected president, according to a campaign official.
The pledge, which the presumptive Democratic nominee will unveil in a video at Netroots, a conference for liberal activists, sets a timetable for pushing an idea that Clinton has suggested throughout the primary.
The Citizens United decision, issued in 2010, is perhaps the most prominent of several court cases that helped unleash a flood of spending by big donors, corporations and others in recent elections.
Hours after Donald Trump revealed that Mike Pence would be his running mate, the silver-haired Indiana governor occupied prominent space on a presidential campaign website. The only problem: The website was Hillary Clinton’s.
Clinton’s team published a page attacking Pence almost immediately after the announcement, describing Trump’s pick as a “would-be disaster for America.”
Meanwhile, on Trump’s website, mention of the Indiana governor was practically invisible, save for an automatic stream of the real estate mogul’s Twitter feed far at the bottom of the page.
