The Washington D.C. based traditional PAC, End Citizens United have spent the last three years fighting for the rights of American voters who are often now ignored by the politicians they elect to office in favor of the needs of well-heeled special interest groups. The PAC limits the donations of members to just $5,000 per election cycle in a bid to ensure no single donor feels they have the right to use the PAC for their own needs; major liberal donors such as George Soros have supported End Citizens United but the fact the group does not take major financial donations from any groups means ECU President Tiffany Muller can maintain the political independence of the group.

By the time the major campaigning for the 2018 Midterms comes around End Citizens United is hoping to have raised more than $35 million from grassroots members to aid the left-leaning Democrats seeking office in some of the hardest fought areas of the country. Tiffany Muller has already explained her belief Democrats are more open to reforming the election finance regulations than Republicans which is why she decided to back left-leaning political candidates.
End Citizens United has decided to back the Democrat candidates who are willing to accept a pledge from the PAC stating they are unwilling to accept the funding of special interest groups who are eroding the voting rights of millions of Americans. The list of candidates being backed by End Citizens United has grown over the course of the buildup to the 2018 Midterms to include more than 70 Democrats pledging to refuse special interest group funding.
In the coming months, End Citizens United will back candidates including former Congressman Beto O’Rourke who has given up his seat in a bid to challenge Republican Senator Ted Cruz who has accepted more than $1 million in special interest funding. O’Rourke is not a household name in Texas but End Citizens United believes he has the opportunity to unseat the former Presidential candidate by explaining his views on election finance reform. End Citizens United believes special interest groups are never simply working to elect a Republican candidate without later wanting the aid of said politician over policies which may not be of the greatest importance to their constituents.
