There’s a PAC (political action committee) that has the main goal of doing away with Citizens United entirely. It claims that it’s going to put millions of dollars to good use during the upcoming 2018 midterms. The group’s objective is to help Democrats who believe in reforming campaign financing. It wants to assist them with the election process. The committee revealed on Tuesday that its main 20 focal points will be Representatives Duncan Hunter, Mimi Walters, Darrell Issa and Daria Rohrabacher, among others. These four figures come from a watch list that indicates California House members who are in any kind of danger.
Tiffany Muller is the executive director for End Citizens United, the political action committee that is behind all of this. She indicates that the Golden State is a symbol of many of the finest openings available. She also states that it has some of the most awful precedents out there, too. She acknowledged that Duncan Hunter is being investigated at the moment for possible campaign money misuse. She also acknowledged that Darrell Issa has been given donations from various telecommunications businesses.
End Citizens United was created back in 2015. The group used roughly $25.5 million during the election in 2016. Muller stated that the committee is getting ready to focus on voters who are independent. It’s going to focus on voters who make political money their biggest areas of concentration.
Information provided by the Federal Election Commission indicates that End Citizens United has gotten access to $115 million so far. This figure is accurate as of the end of October in 2017. Leaders for the organization refused to indicate the exact sum of money they think that they’ll be using to cover Caifornia’s four districts.
This committee has backed prominent people who are part of the Democratic party in the past. It has backed candidates including Hillary Clinton, Jon Ossoff, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Russ Feingold and Zephry Teachout. End Citizens United had the distinction of being among the biggest external organizations to assist in the election processes of both Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Maggie Hassan. This was for the election in 2016. The group put a total of $4.4 million in for these efforts.
End Citizens United was born out of the simple desire to stop the concept of political “Big Money.” It strives on a daily basis to turn around a United States Supreme Court decision that took place back in 2010. This decision was for a case called Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. This decision took away regulation restrictions that applied to expenditure organization spending for certain candidates. End Citizens United keeps its attention on all different parts of the United States. It runs out of Washington, D.C.
