With the commitment to face out lump sum money from the general elections and politics, End Citizens United has amassed more than $4 million. This happened within three months in 2017. The committee is political based and is committed to generating approximately $ 35 million in mid-2018. The amount to be raised will be relatively high because End Citizens United spent about $ 25 million in the elections held in 2016. This period marked their first participation in elections since the organization was formed.
According to Tiffany Muller, more than 1,000 people have made contributions towards the elections. The president of End Citizens United continued to explain that over 40,000 members were first-time contributors. The aim of the group is ensuring fair elections through finance reforms. Since the introduction of a new president, members of the group have been feeling that they are undermined by the president and the new government. End Citizens United has a feeling that the only people with heard voices are the wealthy. Towards this end, the team has ensured that the elected members of Congress focus on implementing change in 2018. This is in a bid to fight back through their support for Democrats.
A few months ago, the End Citizens United team participated in the mobilization of contributors in a bid to make donations towards Jon Ossoff’s candidacy. Ossoff is a first-time candidate. The Democrat hails from Georgia and has raised more than $4 million since April. He shall be vying for the seat with the hope of replacing Tom Prince. Tom Prince was nominated as the health secretary. The nomination left a vacant space in the cabinet. Muller said that PAC was examining the future of the 2018 elections. He also stated that he would ensure fairness through the participation of Democratic senators.
While End Citizens United allows donors to contribute approximately $5,000, the PAC has collected a relatively higher amount. That amount was utilized in the 2016 general elections. End Citizens United participates in many events apart from the democrat’s candidacy. When Betsy DeVos was being confirmed as secretary of education, the PAC partnered with other groups. This was in a bid to persuade two Republican senators not to vote. Betsy DeVos funded the republican’s campaigns. Towards that end, there was a tie in the nomination. Vice President Pence broke the tie by nominating Bets DeVos.
