John Deaton Commits to Nation-Leading Term Limits Pledge

Promises to Introduce Constitutional Amendment Capping U.S. House and Senate Terms

WOBURN – John Deaton, candidate for U.S. Senate, has committed to sponsoring legislation if elected that would amend the U.S. Constitution to limit all federal members of Congress to two (2) six-year terms in the Senate and three (3) two-year terms in the House. Deaton signed his own pledge with U.S. Term Limits pledging to serve no more than two terms.

“Americans today are the victims of a dysfunctional Congress dominated by entrenched elites who enrich themselves while in office, surrender to special interests, and overstay their welcome at the expense of their constituents,” said Deaton. “Elizabeth Warren went to Washington to fix the system, but after two terms she’s become the poster child for “Potomac Fever.” In the spirit of Massachusetts, I pledge to lead an effort to reform our system and get Congress back to work for the American people.”

The pledge with U.S. Term Limits reads:

“I, John Deaton, pledge that as a member of Congress I will cosponsor and vote for the U.S. Term Limits Amendment of three (3) House terms and two (2) Senate terms and no longer limit.”

Deaton signed the pledge yesterday steps from the United States Capitol.

Background:

In the 118th Congress:

  • Former Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) died in office after winning election five (5) times and serving nearly 31 years in office.
  • Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced he will retire after nearly 40 years in office and seven (7) terms.
  • Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is on trial for federal corruption charges. He is in his 18th year and third term in office and previously served 13 years and more than six (6) terms in the U.S. House.
