Phoenix, Arizona: August 22, 2017, Arizona Democratic U.S. Senate Candidate, Deedra Abboud released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s Campaign rally:
Sometimes it feels like an endless uphill battle, a struggle against big business and government business as usual.
BUT THIS WEEK WE’VE LODGED A VICTORY IN A MAJOR FIGHT.
Citizens United was a disastrous 2010 Supreme Court decision that allowed big business to pour unlimited money into the political landscape, eroding the power of the people and giving special interests a direct highway to influencing our government.
Corporations want there to be only one way into Washington, and it’s a toll road.

My story is the quintessential American story. My journey is your journey.
I was born and raised in Arkansas, the youngest of four girls raised by a single parent.
My mom worked two or three jobs to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I
remember her always being tired, so tired. But even three jobs were not enough to afford
health insurance, so my mother lived in constant fear, knowing we were one ER visit or
serious illness away from being homeless.
We existed in the margins.
