Campaign Description

Charlie Bass has taken over $358,000 from insurance CEOs, lobbyists, and PACs while voting to allow them to discriminate against women when it comes to providing equal coverage. Bass has refused to back real reforms, and has even voted against disclosure that would allow us to know who’s funding the attack ads, but has used his access to benefit family business and make a profit for himself. Then, he lied to the media about it. It’s time to say No to Charlie Bass.

Friends of Democracy targeted 28,453 voters in the race between incumbent Representative Charles Bass and challenger Ann McLane Kuster. Rep. Charles Bass was defeated by a margin of 17,096 votes.
