Russ Feingold founded LegitPAC to support progressive candidates and causes in the fight for legitimacy. LegitPAC members believe we must support campaigns that will defend our democracy and its institutions against the efforts by wealthy and special interests intent on making the government serve them.

Thanks to the rise of dark money in elections after the Citizens United ruling, massive amounts of outside spending have been pouring into elections and threatening to drown out progressive candidates and causes. A democracy is only legitimate when it is elected by the people and answerable to the people — and it will only answer to the people if the people engage in the election process.
