NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The “We Need Smith” team’s groundbreaking research, introduced on July Fourth, has sparked action in our country. Congressional candidates are taking notice in response to the American electorate’s dissatisfaction with the current state of politics in Washington D.C. The Smith research indicates that America is reaching a tipping point, and a new majority will demand change that neither the Democrats nor Republicans are offering.
The Candidate Smith movement has recognized this new vision and distributed the Promise To America to all running for office, both incumbents as well as challengers. This promise vows to fight the elements of corruption in our Nation’s political system, and hold the political elite accountable for their actions.
The Pledge has already received three signatures in less than a week of distribution, including: Kerith Strano Taylor (D) of Pennsylvania’s 5th district, Chris Day (R) of New York’s 17th district, and Jim Fischer (R) of New York’s 20th district.
These Congressional hopefuls are listening to the American people and campaigning for change, as they realize there must be an adjustment to the current system in order to break the trend of reelecting corruption within the pool of incumbents. By signing the pledge, they’re attempting to advance the interests of our nation over the partisan agenda so evident in today’s political arena.
"We’re thrilled that Strano Taylor, Day, and Fischer have stepped forward to join us, as it’s time we, as an American people, come together to make a difference in our society by supporting our Promise To America,” said Pat Caddell, who helped design the research and develop the strategy behind this campaign. “There is a seemingly senseless divide among the American electorate, and instead of just blaming the current state of politics, the Promise To America gives the people a platform to stand against this corruption. We strive to leverage this pledge in hopes of getting Capitol Hill to bring real change by putting an end to the political game.”
This Promise is not just for Congressional hopefuls, but those who are currently in office as well. You can take a stand against the corrupt system by visiting promisetoamerica.us and sending the pledge to your representative. The We Need Smith movement is giving the power back to the people - be part of the movement and send the pledge today.
