Recently, End Citizen United backed Senator Elizabeth Warren for U.S. Senate. Warren is a strong opponent of a ruling by the Supreme Court in favor of the grievous Citizens United. She has worked tirelessly to reform the United States’ dysfunctional campaign finance system. According to Tiffany Muller, no one has maintained a stronger opposition to the undignified influence of money in politics than Senator Warren. Muller is the president and executive director of End Citizens United. Muller added that Senator Warren has spent her profession opposing corporate special interests on behalf of the American workers. She is known as a champion of all hard-working families that have been locked out of the American democracy. She noted that they were pleased to support Senator Warren. They also looked forward to working with her to fix the manipulated system in Washington.

Senator Warren said that as long as the Citizens United decision remains in effect, American democracy is faced with real danger. The ruling has encouraged some millionaires and billionaires to flood their political system with secrets and unlimited spending.

Warren pointed out that there is need to stop the corrupt and rigged system for every American to have an equal say in their democracy. The senator noted that she was honored to be endorsed by End Citizens United and looks forward to collaborating with the organization fix the system. Warren heads the campaign for finance reform. She has been a strong promoter of disclosure by supporting legislation in the Senate to bring a halt to wealthy donors from concealing their political spending. Moreover, she has pushed for regulations requiring public corporations and government contractors to reveal their political spending.

End Citizens United is raising huge amounts of money on its own. The Political Action Committee (PAC) collected over $4 million from January to March this year. It projects that it will raise $38 million before the 2018 midterm elections for Congress. This would be a considerable increase from the $25 million that the group raised in 2016. Notably, 100,000 people donated towards End Citizens United’s initiative during the first three months of the year. Out of these donors, 40,000 are first time contributors. According to the leaders of End Citizens United, they are seeking to elect campaign finance reform champions. Muller said that the average donations that that they have received this year is $12 million. The people who are making their contribution to the group feel that the system is manipulated against them given that those who give out the biggest checks get a bigger say. Contributing to End Citizens United is their way of opposing dark money in politics. In the last few weeks, End Citizens United has called for the populace to contribute $500,000 to the congressional campaign in support of Jon Ossoff. He is a democrat and first-time political candidate in Georgia. This information was originally reported on USA Today.

End Citizen United Vision and Future Plans

Democratic candidates who will be running for different public offices will be at ease because they will be able to get campaign funds. This is after a new political action committee was formed. The End Citizens United will be able to give tens of millions to the House and Senate offices all across the USA. They get money from small donors that have contributed multiple millions of dollars.

 

Their aim is to pass a constitution amendment that wants to remove the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision that established the super PACs that has caused a lot of unaccounted money to be pumped into the US politics. Many people who have signed up to this movement that will pass a petition to Congress. 4 million inhabitants will be the ones who will join in and push for the right course. Big money politics will be avoided.

 

Tiffany Muller, the executive director, and the president said that about 100,000 people had contributed. They want to take people who will reduce the campaign funding in the Congress. The average amount of the contributions is 12 dollars, and they all want the leaders to get to Congress without a sponsor who will influence their leadership in office.

 

The Democrats want to win back offices that were lost to the Republicans and are not happy because Trump took the president seat. They will fight against his opinions and agendas that also include the person that he chose to lead the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.

 

End Citizen United wants funds for the candidate vying for the congressional seat in Georgia and is a Democrat. He has been able to contribute 4 million dollars that have astonished many since he is just 30 years.

 

The PAC is still looking for the candidates that they will support for the 2018 races that will be looking for new house representative seats. They will defend the senators who are in the Congress now like Sherrod Brown and Jon Tester.

 

Operations in their committee are as a traditional PAC that cannot take contributions that are more than 5,000 dollars from one person. The small amount contributions put it in a top position in the Democrat-aligned groups that give money to the contestants. There were concerns but were not severe that they are stressing on contributions instead of focusing on grassroots activism.

 

Their spokesman, Adam Bozzi is in the view that the group should have ties with the campaign financiers so that they will not compromise leadership. He has collaborated with several groups that encouraged Republican senators to recuse themselves from nominating the now Secretary for Education Betsy DeVos since she had funded them with her family money.
