In January, a federal judge ruled that the Wisconsin Legislature—tasked with drawing legislative districts—would have to re-draw them to less blatantly favor one party over the other. 

The Legislature in Wisconsin drew unconstitutionally partisan lines because they wanted to rig the system.

They've appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court, and you can bet they'll be well financed. 

This problem is called Gerrymandering, and I'm determined to terminate its poisonous impact on our democracy. 

That's why I've partnered with Common Cause, a nonprofit focused on promoting open, honest and accountable government.

We want to hire the best-in-the-business lawyers to argue this and other critical cases before the Supreme Court. 

If we win, we have the chance to make gerrymandering unconstitutional nation-wide. 

But terminating gerrymandering will be expensive.

Arguing a case in front of the Supreme Court, filing amicus briefs, paying for the research and legal expertise necessary to really have a shot at terminating gerrymandering -- that'll take anywhere from $250,000 to $1,000,000. 

We're hoping YOU can help us get to $150,000. And because we must win these cases, I'm personally going to match each and every dollar we raise with my own contribution.

Please chip in whatever you can afford today -- even $3 will send a powerful message that the citizens of America won't stand idly by as politicians protect their jobs instead of earn them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

We hit a major milestone over the long weekend, crossing the $100,000 line. That means I'm on the hook for over six figures. I can't thank all of you enough. 

As I've been helping to recruit Republicans to join the amicus briefs in support of our side in Gill vs. Whitford, I've been reminding them of your great support. I think you'll all be very happy with some of the great names that come out on the right side of this issue when we file the briefs today, but for now I want to thank all of you for being a part of this. We can truly change our country for the better.

Now, I'd like to challenge you. I'm really excited that I have to cut a check for over 100k. Let's make it more. Share with your friends, keep fighting. Do it now.

Thank you!

Friends -- 

I have been traveling across the globe, but I had to take a moment to write you a quick note of thanks for joining me in the effort to end partisan gerrymandering.

Now that the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case, our work begins in earnest. You are on the front lines of this battle, and I’m grateful to have you with me in this fight. 
 
I can think of no better way to celebrate our patriotism after July 4th than boldly proclaiming that as American citizens, we stand united against gerrymandering and the broken political system it has created.
 
We stand against politicians choosing themselves and their jobs over the people. 
 
We stand for American citizens taking political power into their own hands. 
 
You’ve already done your part by donating -- now make sure that your friends know we have the chance to make gerrymandering unconstitutional. 
 
Share your support on Facebook.
 
Together, we’re going to make Washington work for regular people again. 
 
I hope you had a fantastic fourth, 
Arnold
