Corruption proves 'extremely important' in election victory

CNN conducted exit polls yesterday asking voters which issues were "extremely important." The results:

42% – Corruption
40% – Terrorism
39% – Economy
37% – Iraq

Despite the relative lack of attention that corruption received compared to the Iraq War in recent months, it came out on top for importance to the voting public.  This is good news for all of us to keep commitments outlined in the Voters First Pledge.  For the new Congress, there is no excuse not to pass real lobbying and campaign finance reform.
