The Role of End Citizens United in Reforming the Campaign Financial Systems
The End Citizens United is an action political reform group that focuses on eradicating unhealthy extravagance in the politics. It raises funds, which are directed to financing campaigns and courses of Democrats and other political reform activities. The group does not accept donations of more than $5000 from a single person. This rule is encouraged to eliminate corrupt wealthy individuals from rigging the elections by buying their way to the top.
This year, the movement has collected approximately $4 million in the first three months. It targets to raise over $35 million at the end of the year as the 2018 midterm Congress elections approaches. According to the USA TODAY reports, if the targeted amount is accomplished, it will mark a historic surge from the PAC’s contribution to the 2016 election at $25 million. Out of the 100,000 people who contributed in the first quarter of the year, more than quarter of them gave for the first time. This shows the increasing effectiveness of the group’s activities in educating people about the significance of reformed financial campaign system. Tiffany Muller, the group’s president and chief director, indicated that their goal is to elect candidates who support their campaign to reform the political financial system. She added that the Democrats were furious and disappointed following President Trumps win, and they were ready to fight his unfair agendas and backdoor nominees.
The End Citizens UnitedSupport to the Democrats
In the recent months, The End Citizens United action committee has urged donors to contribute to the first-time Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff. Ossoff seeks to fill a Republican House seat in Atlanta that fell vacant. The Democrat surprised everyone after raising over $4 million despite being a newbie in the game.
End Citizens United recently announced their endorsement for Rob Quist who is running for Congress in the oncoming special elections. According to Tiffany Muller, Quist is a true leader who refuses to cater to the selfish interests of the dark money groups trying to kill the democracy of provided in the constitution. He runs against a millionaire opponent lobbying to work against Montana’s great government. Muller added that Quist is a true fight and a champion to their action to reform campaign financial system and End Citizens United is proud to stand by him.
