In 2016, the End Citizens United PAC made its first splash on the national stage by fighting against the rising problem of billionaire donors providing their support for individual campaigns leading to major problems with conflicts of interest. During the 2016 election cycle, End Citizens United looks to use two different messages to see which would prove the more successful for the group in upcoming elections; the first message used a traditional Democrat set of values and the second concentrated on the issue of big money arriving in U.S. politics would prove the most successful.
End Citizens United has made a number of advances since being formed in 2015 and made the decision to release its “Big Money 20” list of politicians towards the close of 2017 to kickoff the campaign for the 2018 midterm elections. The list has been explained by End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller who revealed the Republican members of Congress on the list had been identified as those serving their billionaire donors above the needs of the nation; the 20 politicians are seen as prime targets for End Citizens United and include Texas Senator Ted Cruz and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Political experts have stated the aim of End Citizens United to overturn the 2010 Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United will be a tough goal to achieve. However, End Citizens United has looked for candidates to the left of the political spectrum who are friendly to the cause of bringing an end to Citizens United and backed them in a range of different ways. In the past, End Citizens United has focused largely on backing the campaigns of Democrats but has now shifted its focus to drawing attention to the influence of big money on conservative politicians from across the U.S. including 17 members of the House of Representatives, two Senators, and the House Speaker.
Established in 2015, the Washington D.C. headquartered End Citizens United has become a major part of the Democrat policy for wresting control of Congress from the Republicans during the 2018 midterm election. End Citizens United has already provided an endorsement for many Democrats seeking reelection in 2018 including Elizabeth Warren who has provided her support for bringing an end to the Citizens United decision. Tiffany Muller believes operating as a traditional PAC allows End Citizens United to remain free of the political influence of major donors as the grassroots financial gifts received by End Citizens United are capped at just $5,000 per donor.
