End Citizens United, a Political Action Committee (PAC), is dedicated to fight against unlimited spending in American elections. The agency is planning to raise huge resources ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. The group, which raised $25 million for the 2016 elections, intends to increase the amount by $10 million to ensure that more Democrats are elected into Congress. They have already raised $4 million in their endorsement of Georgia-based Jon Ossoff, who is in the race to occupy a Republican House position in Atlanta. The seat was formerly occupied by Tom Price, the current Health and Human Services Secretary. End Citizens United is campaigning to raise $500,000 for the 30-year-old first time politician. Tiffany Muller, End Citizens United’s executive director, said that the $4 million raised during the first quarter of the year was received from 60,000 traditional contributors and 40,000 first time donors. She added that they are looking forward to electing candidates whose agenda is to enhance financial reforms in the American election.
The group’s donors are tired of dark money in politics. Wealthy individuals and special groups inject big money in elections with the objective of shifting the power to their advantage. The PAC’s supporters are also displeased with President Trump’s win. To this end, they are planning to oppose his agenda and nominees, including Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Tiffany Muller, who has demonstrated a strong leadership for End Citizens United, acquired her political power while serving as the deputy political director of the campaign arm of the Senate Democrats. Under her leadership, the group ranked among the leading Democratic groups spending in 2016 elections despite their donation limit of 5,000 per person. In addition, End Citizens United partnered with over twenty groups to urge Republican Senators not to vote for Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee for the position of Secretary of Education.

About End Citizens United
End Citizens United refers to the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision on Citizens United, which paved way for unlimited spending by unions and corporations in elections. It also gave rise to numerous super PACs. With the American landscape turning chaotic, End Citizens United aims to bring back order by fighting for accountability and transparency in political spending. They also work to support and protect the people who are being attacked by the billionaires. End Citizens United was established in 2015. Grassroots donors funds its operations.
With its grassroots membership, the group demonstrates political power on the issue of spending in American politics and plans to make it a national priority. They intend to achieve their objective of reversing the court’s decision by electing Democratic candidates, who are traditional supporters of financial reform. To lead by example, the group has submitted its most recent filing with the Federal Elections Commission as a means of enhancing and upholding transparency.
