With the 2018 midterms looming up ahead there is a lot of work for the various candidates running for re-election or running for the first time for public office. The PAC organization End Citizens United has been very busy as of late with coming up with the Big 20 list, endorsing candidates, and raising grassroots donations. It is a busy time, but also a time with much purpose and direction for the political action committee.
End Citizens United has worked diligently to try to change the course of special interest money in politics since it was founded in 2015. End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller has stated that the organization is expecting to raise $35 million for the midterm elections coming up. They have raised numerous funds over the years for candidates who refuse special interest money and want to overturn the Citizens United Supreme Court decision. The 2018 midterm elections have taken on a much more poignant meaning this year because of strong grassroots organization across the country that is in opposition to special interest money in our political system.

The organization’s main focus for the 2018 midterms is to remove the Big Money 20 out of the political system. The Big Money 20 is a list that the employees at End Citizens United put together as a hit list of politicians owned by special interested money that they hope to remove from office. End Citizens United has made sure to endorse grassroots candidates whenever possible who are running against the Big Money 20. The efforts of trying to remove special interest politicians is not quite as difficult as it has been in the past since more citizens are aware or “woke” about the issue of corporate special interest money owning politicians. This makes the government not truly for the people by the people.
