End Citizens United, an action committee on the political field was formed on 1st March 2015 whose financing is by the ordinary benefactors. This committee was majorly formed so as to counter the 2010 decision by the United State Supreme Court on a case on the Federal Election Commission versus the Citizens United. This decision by the court has encouraged many billionaires to attain political power for themselves as well.
They are located in Washington, DC where their main headquarters lie. The political committee is led by an executive director who is the president of the committee known as Tiffany Muller. The main objective and goal of the End Citizens United is to bring to an end the so-called Big Money on the political field which will be majorly achieved through the input of pro-reform persons and persons who are democratic, utilizing ordinary members that will show their strength against finances which have led to electoral corruptions. In order to achieve their mission, the End Citizens United, are also establishing and participating in campaigns that are likely to change the laws in the nation on its political arena.
The first operation of this group was on 2016 in its first ¬¬voting period. In this period, it emerged as one largest group that offered assistance to senators such as; Catherine Cortez and Maggi Hassan. In addition to their claim and mission, the End Citizens United are standing at an advantageous position due to the strength in numbers to their members, donors, contributions which include 3.9 million, 400,000 and 2.7 million respectively. In this, they will be able to bring back the state back to its democracy where the political field where it was previously accountable and transparent compared to the current state.
The End Citizens United has recently endorsed Beto O’Rourke to the Senate which has been brought about by Beto refusing to accept money which political actions that were incorporated bid him. As a matter of fact, Beto O’Rourke has confessed that contributions from the state of Texas were his most desire without any desire to get donations from great political committees. End Citizens United usually offers its support to candidates in the race who reject assistance from huge corporations that offer huge finance assistance.
Since the group is financed by small donors, in the previous elections, the group supported its candidates with $25million compared to this year’s target of $35million that will be used to support its opponents in the current ‘Big Money 20’. The Big Money 20 is the representatives and the senators who agree to be financed from large corporations and special groups in the state.
