2012 Success

In 2012, seven of the eight incumbent House members targeted for defeat by Friends of Democracy lost. We delivered more than 2 million individual voter contacts in these eight districts, all on the issue of money-in-politics, complemented by 100 million online impressions through web advertising in six of them. Due to the sheer volume of our work, money-in-politics became a central factor in each of these races. This success is the tip of the iceberg of what can be accomplished through an expanded program in upcoming cycles.
