End Citizens United And Their Key Candidates

We are getting closer to the November 2018 midterm elections, and End Citizens United is still fighting just as hard, supporting candidates of the democratic party in order to take down some of the most prominent Republicans in the House and Senate.

End Citizens United, a political action committee, was created on the heels of a particular Supreme Court Decision – Citizens United. A PAC, short for political action committee, may not have the power to change the Supreme Court’s mind, but they do have the power to support politicians that oppose the Citizens United Decision.

What is Citizens United?

The Supreme Court ruled that corporations and business have the right to donate money to politicians of their choosing. This further cemented the idea that corporations should be considered people, despite so many laws that protect corporations from criminal prosecution.

According to endcitizensunited.org, corporations are obviously able to raise much more money than any individual can. This creates an unfair system that results in the common person having less of a voice because they can’t contribute nearly as much in political donations.

End Citizen United’s Long List of Supported Candidates

Everyone has their eyes on the Texas Senate seat that currently belongs to Ted Cruz. It is almost a sure thing at this point that Ted Cruz is through, but End Citizens United has not ceased supporting their candidate Beto O’Rourke. Like all of the candidates backed by End Citizens United, O’Rourke refuses money from big corporations. Beto O’Rourke, as the first candidate supported by End Citizens United, is leading the charge for Democrats heading into the 2018 midterms.

Another candidate that is supported by the PAC is Jacky Rosen. She is currently representing Nevada’s 3rd in the House of Representatives, but she hopes to win a Senate seat in the upcoming elections. Rosen is attempted to un-seat Dean Heller, a politician that is open about accepting big money from large businesses and corporations.
