Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., announced Tuesday she’s throwing $175,000 into Democratic efforts to flip state legislatures and fight voter suppression.

America’s democracy was “decaying” before President Trump came along, Warren said, and Democrats have to promise “structural change” to fix it.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Politicians are supposed to compete over how many voters they can persuade, not how many citizens they can disqualify or demoralize,” said Warren, speaking at an ideas conference hosted by Center for American Progress. “In states across the country, we need to stand up against voter suppression efforts like racist voter ID laws and restrictions on early voting.”

To do fight gerrymandering, Warren said, Democrats have to win back state houses where they saw their majorities diminish during former President Barack Obama’s administration.

Warren said she’s donating $175,000 to organizations “on the front lines trying to win back our legislatures.”

The Massachusets senator also said that Democrats are interested in “a fair fight” and wish to ensure that “districts aren’t drawn to cut out one party or the other.”
