The End Citizens United is a political action committee that was formed to campaign finance reforms in the country. The PAC, as it is called is dedicated to raising millions of dollars for the Democratic candidates in the competing for Senate and Houses positions in the country.
Only formed recently, the group managed to raise $2 million in its first month of inception, and as it seems, the group is on track to raise about $30 million for the whole cycle.
The primary focus of the committee is to pass a law that would reverse the Supreme Court’s decision on the group, which in 2010 saw the establishment of major PACs and introduce a tsunami of dirty money into politics.
As it stands out, over 325,000 individuals have signed the committee’s petition urging Congress to pass the law. The group has partnered with “Ready for Hillary,” a move that will see the group receive a boost.
While other PACs push on finance reforms, the End Citizen United group is a bit different from others as it only backs candidates who are pushing for finance reform.
The committee is planning to set up an independent expenditure department later in the year so as to support the candidates through various initiatives such as direct mailers, television ads, and polling.
So far, since its inception, the group has collected over $4 million, and the figure is projected to reach $35 million by 2018 mid-term elections, this is according to the report published by the USA Today.
This would be a significant surge from $25 million the group collected for the 2016 election year.
More than 100,000 individuals contributed the committee in the first quarter for 2017 calendar year, 40,000 whom contributed money for the first time.
Tiffany Muller, one of the group’s leader, said their aim is to elect “campaign- finance reforms champions” to the government.
Tiffany further said the average contribution the group received in 2017 is $12. However, the group’s contributors feel like the system is compromised and turned against them, in that those who contributed the largest amount of money have the bigger say, and this is their technique of retaliating.
