End Citizens United Rejects Corporate PAC Funding

In a world where there are a significant amount of politicians taking campaign contributions from corporate super PACs, there are at least some politicians who are maintaining their integrity. End Citizens United recently revealed that over 111 Democratic candidates have made it explicitly clear that they will accept no contributions from any corporate PACs and they have each ended up winning their respective primaries. Additionally, 60 percent of Democratic candidates who are trying to flip seats from red to blue have pledged not to take any campaign donations from big corporations. End Citizens United is dedicated to advocating for campaign finance reform and to overturn the decision of Citizens United vs. FEC. Read more about End Citizens United at Wikipedia.

From congressional races in Ohio to the highly contested senate race in Texas, Democrats have made it quite clear that they will be working for the people and not the other way around. Additionally, Democrats are using their current stance on campaign finance reform to discredit the Republicans and make their positions on super PACs look rather weak. End Citizens United has assured the general public that they will not endorse any candidate who agrees to accept campaign contributions from larger corporations or super PACs and is looking to drive big money out of politics altogether. This comes on the heels of the Democrats by far surpassing their annual fundraising goal.

They passed their goal of $75.27 million with still a few months to go before the midterm elections and it seems highly likely that they may even surpass $100 million before the midterms in November. It is estimated that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has accounted for almost 37 percent of their total fundraising goal from the past year and a half which has since exceeded $191 million dollars. End Citizens United saw the tide began to turn not long after the 2016 presidential election when the Democrats managed to flip six seats in the aftermath of the inauguration. Now they seem poised to take back the Senate, House, and Congress as the midterms loom large over Washington DC. So we wish them the best of luck.
