The End Citizens United PAC has been looking to publicize the campaign of a Democratic candidate for a Senate seat representing the people of Texas that is currently held by well known Republican Ted Cruz. End Citizens United is itself registered as a traditional PAC where the level of funds provided by individuals or groups is limited unlike the Super PAC’s the liberal group is battling to bring an to; the decision by Beto O’Rourke to limit the funding provided by PAC’s will not allow End Citizens United to provide funding for the campaign, but the group can publicize the growing campaign that took in over $2 million in funding from grassroots sources across the second quarter of 2017.
End Citizens United have thrown their weight behind the campaigns of Democrats who support bringing an end to the Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United that allowed wealthy donors the opportunity to provide support to the political party and candidates of their choice without financial limitations. Democrat Beto O’Rourke has already shown he shares many of the beliefs of End Citizens United by introducing a bill that would halt all PAC and Super PAC money being directed towards Congressional candidates; despite the fact he is refusing aid from End Citizens United, the group is directing its members across the U.S. to work to add to the funding for the campaign that has reported averaging donations of around $44.
The End Citizens United group has quickly become a major group supporting the people of the U.S. who feel they are not being fairly represented by politicians being influenced by some of the wealthiest donors in the world. Only accepting grassroots donations, End Citizens United has registered in the U.S. as a traditional PAC who will limit the donations of any donor to just $5,000; the group believes this will halt any wealthy donor attempting to bring their influence to bear on the political direction End Citizens United will take in the coming years.
Despite only being established in the buildup to the 2016 U.S. Presidential election cycle, End Citizens United has already built a large base of supporters who are working to bring an end to the Supreme Court decisions establishing Super PAC’s. In the first three months of 2017, End Citizens United built a fund for the 2018 midterms to around $4 million and hopes to extend this to $35 million by the time the midterm campaigns hit their stride. Among the decisions made by End Citizens United has been the choice to back Democratic candidates who have shown they are supportive of the bid to bring an end to wealthy donors and Super PAC’s extending their political influence as the 21st century moves forward.
