End Citizens United is a political action committee that’s a new force in the world. Its objective is campaign finance reform. The organization strives to make waves in the political scene in the near future. That’s why it’s working on setting aside a substantial sum of money to donate to Senate and House candidates who are part of the Democratic party. End Citizens United was established in August of 2015. It has garnered $2 million plus from numerous lesser known donors. It’s expected to get anywhere between $25 million and $30 million when all is said and done.
The committee’s primary aim is to get approval for a constitutional amendment that wishes to turn around the Supreme Court’s choice regarding Citizens United. End Citizens United has revealed that it’s supporting 11 candidates who are part of the Democratic party. Colorado’s Senator Michael Bennet and Wisconsin’s Senator Russ Feingold are just two of these candidates. End Citizens United is going to be establishing an independent expenditure division at some point later on. The point of this division is to offer financial assistance to the candidates via polls, direct mailers and, last but not least, television advertisements. End Citizens United isn’t offering its help to any members of the Republican party. The organization is aiding candidates who serve as proponents of campaign finance reform that has a lot of impact.
End Citizens United is busy getting lots of money for causes that are important to its members. The committee has collected $4 million plus in the beginning of 2017. It took Ends Citizens United merely three months to acquire this considerable sum of money. The group guesses, too, that it’s going to be getting $35 million before the Congress midterm elections for 2018. If End Citizens United achieves that, it’s going to be a major boost. The political action committee only collected $25 million for the election in 2016.
Roughly 100,000 individuals gave money to this committee in the beginning of 2017. About 40,000 of those individuals had never donated to the group before. This is according to Tiffany Muller, who serves as the committee’s executive director and president. Leaders of the organization state that they strive to bring people who are 100 percent passionate about campaign finance reform into Congress. Muller indicated that typical contributions were $12.00.
Muller used to work as a deputy political director for the Democratic campaign division of the Senate. She stated that the organization is in the middle of assessing upcoming races. End Citizens United functions as a standard political action committee. It, as a result, is unable to take any donations that exceed $5,000 from individuals. End Citizens United is a group that has a zeal for fundraising.
