End Citizens United

Founded in 2015, End Citizens United campaigns for politicians in opposition to the Supreme Court’s decisions regarding corporate contributions. It aims to reverse this ruling through a constitutional amendment. As the 2018 race commences, the political action committee (PAC), End Citizens United, officially endorsed Senator Sheldon Whitehouse’s 2018 reelection bid. Whitehouse is renowned for being an active opponent of the Supreme Court’s decision. In his 2017 book, “Captured: The Corporate Infiltration of American Democracy”, he called for transparency in spending and political donations. In 2016, the PAC spent over $15 million in Senate and House races to help elect 15 congressional members.

 

Recently, Whitehouse criticized Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch about the sources of his nomination funds. Amidst this controversy, End Citizens United managed to collect upwards of $4 million in contributions. End Citizen United expects to raise $35 million for the midterm Congressional elections, a significant increase compared to 2016. An average donation received by the PAC in 2017 is $12. According to the committee’s leader Tiffany Muller, the objective of the exercise is to champion reforms on the financing of political campaigns.

 

Increased levels of discontent within the Democratic Party regarding President Trump’s policies and nominees has led to an increase in the group’s momentum and recruitment activities. The group’s $4 million contributions to the campaign of the Democratic Party’ candidate Jon Ossoff surprised many political pundits. It is expected that the group will play a significant role in the reelection campaigns of candidates in 2018. Presently, the group is heavily involved in lobbying for influence in the reformation of the Supreme Court’s decision. In its pursuit of this goal, the organization in 2016 collaborated with the Hilary Clinton campaign. The group has an email list of 4 million individuals, facilitating dialogue, coordination, and contributions between members and potential supporters.

 

End Citizens United references the Supreme Courts 2010 Citizens United decision allowing union and corporate donations during elections. Operating as a traditional PAC, the group caps contributions at $5,000. In 2016, the group ranked among the top Democratic Party’s contributors. Although it is not the only PAC focused on the reformation of campaign finance, End Citizens United is unique in its commitment to campaign reforms. It hopes to achieve its goal by supporting the election of campaign reform favorable candidates.

 

Whitehouse is expected to contest against two Republican candidates: Coventry state representative Robert Nardolilo or former state Justice Robert Flanders. Nardolilo will announce his candidature on May 15. To facilitate the collection of 330,000 donors and 160,00 members across the nation, the groups made its endorsement known early in the cycle. Its spokesperson, Adam Bozzi, said the group had formed ties with various election financing organizations in support of its endorsed candidates.
