End Citizens United is a democratic PAC established in Washington D.C. in 2015. Their mission is to combat the republican PAC Citizens United and reform fundraising for the American electoral process. Wealthy donors and the special interests they represent are at the core of what this organization is trying to oppose. They want to bring sensible finance reform back and eliminate the influence of big money. At the forefront of this endeavor is Tiffany Muller, president and executive director. Her efforts have lead to millions of registered members and tens of millions of dollars in contributions to fund operations. Her long and highly-respected resume includes working for former Governor of Kansas Kathleen Sebelius. She has also served as chief of staff for members of congress, along with heading up pro-democrat think tanks and research institutions.

End Citizens United’s goal is to raise thirty-five million dollars for this election year 2018. The organization will not accept donations from anyone in excess of five-thousand dollars, staying true to their own code that it is small donations that will drive their efforts. Their endorsement for Senator Elizabeth Warren are her reelection bid for the senate seat in Massachusetts, Katie Porter for the 45th congressional seat out of California, and Beto O’ Rourke’s senate race against sitting senator Ted Cruz of Texas are a few individuals that the thirty-five million dollar figure is aimed at benefiting. Other republican opposition, referred to as the big money 20, are twenty republican politicians who are facing reelection campaigns this fall. End Citizens United is committed to assisting every democratic candidate running in opposition to the big money 20.
End Citizens United intends on targeting independent voters with their message. Democratic voters will likely vote democrat, as will republican will vote republican. Having those swing voters that currently reside in the independent column of the electorate is essential for their candidate’s success. The aim is to appeal to these voters with a message that resonates with every day Americans, not billionaire elitists who believe anything can be created or controlled if enough money is present. The message is to drive the idea of changing the system back to when individuals running for office won elections based on the principles they apply to their own lives.
