How End Citizens United Supports Politicians

     End Citizens United is a political action committee dedicated to reforming campaign finance. It’s a grassroots effort that is designed to put an end to big money in politics, get pro-reform candidates elected, overturn Citizens United, and create transparency in campaign finance.

An AliveNewspaper.com article announced that End Citizens United was endorsing candidates, like Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, who are renouncing corporate political action committee (PAC) donations. End Citizens United saw that the 2010 Supreme Court Decision allowed special interest groups and corporations to spend as much money as they wanted on political campaigns. Because these donations do not have to be transparent, it gives billionaires the ability to control elections through the amount of money they throw into them.

It was also announced, in an AZCentral.com article, that End Citizens United is supporting Dr. Hiral Tipirneni, an emergency room physician, who is running for the Arizona congressional 8th district seat. Dr. Tipirneni rejected any corporate PAC money and declared that she would give a voice to her constituents and not to corporations who are more concerned with their bottom line.

End Citizens United previously provided support to the successful campaigns of Democrat Conor Lamb in the Pennsylvania House and to Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate race which was in a very conservative district. End Citizens United also supported Jon Ossoff in his loss in the Georgia Congressional special election that was held last year.

End Citizens United was established on March 1, 2015, in Washington DC, and is financed only by grassroots donations. You can find out more at EndCitizensUnited.org where you can see which candidates they are supporting and what PACs are active in each state. End Citizens United believes that corporations are NOT people and that there is a need to stop the limitless spending of the rich few that want to influence political decisions.
