Sheryl Crow starts petition to shorten U.S. election cycle

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Famed singer Sheryl Crow is fed up with this year’s election.

She recently started a petition on to shorten the election cycle in America.

After more than 600 days of hearing about the presidential race and it’s mud-slinging, Crow decided enough is enough.

It says, in part, “This election cycle has been extremely damaging and has incited fear and hatred in a country founded on the beauty of our differences and the desire to lift each person, no matter race, religion, political party, or economic status, to reach his or her fullest potential.”

Crow started the petition three weeks ago. It has since garnered over 59,000 signatures by 4:30 p.m. Friday.
