The U.S. Congressional Elections and the United Nations

by Julian Ku

An outfit called the Better World Campaign is circulating a survey seeking to get U.S. senatorial and congressional candidates to commit to support of the United Nations. They seem to have very little participation so far, except from candidates in very safe seats like Carolyn Maloney from NY’s Upper East Side. Check for your congressional candidate’s views here.

I think U.N. funding is an issue that will get pretty much zero play in most congressional races, but the effort is an interesting way to bring the U.N. into the U.S. political conversation.
