Endorsements Continue To Roll In From End Citizens United

When the traditional PAC, EDnd Citizens United was formed in 2015 with the clear aim of providing a reversal of the controversial Citizens United ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court it was said to have to narrow a focus. After playing a major role in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election cycle, End Citizens United is now seen as a major force for left-leaning candidates from across the U.S. seeking to win office at all levels. The PAC Chair Tiffany Muller has been quick to explain candidates willing to work towards reversing the Citizens United decision will be supported with the full force of her organization. As the days tick down towards the 2018 Midterms, End Citizens United has been endorsing Democrats and Independent candidates at record levels after only three candidates were willing to sign a pledge not to accept funding from special interest groups in 2016.

In contrast, more than 70 left-leaning candidates have been willing to sign the pledge in 2018 prior to the Midterms with the PAC seen as an important group to align oneself with for possible 2020 Democrat Presidential candidates. Among the candidates endorsed by the PAC before the 2018 Midterms are those challenging some of the biggest names in the GOP. The first candidate endorsed by End Citizens United prior to the 2018 Midterms was Beto O’Rourke who is attempting to unseat incumbent former GOP Presidential candidate Ted Cruz; the former Tea Party candidate is now one of the largest recipients of dark money in Washington with the Democrat outperforming Cruz in funding from the grassroots level, according to End Citizens United.

Another candidate initially looking to overcome one of the Republican heavy hitters is Randy Bryce, a candidate who took on the attempt to unseat House Speaker Paul Ryan. A major recipient of dark money, Ryan would withdraw from public life to spend more time with his family after being named to End Citizens United’s Big MOney 20 list. Bryce was already looking a good bet for the victory in 2018 because of his high level of fundraising at the grassroots level which gave the Democrat a lead of almost $2 million in funds raised by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
