Tom Udall is spending a huge amount of his campaign money, ads, time, efforts, rhetoric, on convincing you that he is out to take big money out of politics.
He is spending a huge amount of time trying to convince you that his sponsored legislation to fight Citizens United is an honest effort to clean up something that is always dirty – politics.

Fortunately, some politicians do believe in free speech.
Tom Udall just believes in his own brand of free speech – shutting down challengers and opponents.
