End Citizens United Gains Momentum for the Midterm

In 2010, the supreme court modified the rules for political campaigning which allowed billionaires to influence elections by providing campaign donations. The ruling which allowed such actions to take place is referred to as Citizens united. In response, a grassroots effort started in 2016 by the name of End Citizen’s United, and it is funded mostly by donors contributing small amounts of money.

 

According to this article published on 19 April 2017 by an admin for The French Tribune, the average donation from an individual to End Citizen’s United is around $12. However, the group has been successful in raising over $4 million to fight political corruption in the 2018 midterm elections. With over 400,000 donors, End Citizens United is on its way to reach their goal of $35 million.

 

End Citizens United’s goal is to weed out politicians in Washington who protect corporate interests over the interests of the country. The Democrats’ loss in the 2016 election has been a sobering realization of the country’s direction, and many angry voters have been fighting back the only ways they know how.

 

The organization has been rallying around a few key politicians. One of them is Democrat John Ossof, who is running in the June 20th Special Election for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, who currently leads a company which investigates political corruption and organized crime. They also plan to support Senators Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Jon Tester of Montana in the 2018 election. Brown has been an opponent against Citizen’s United for months, claiming that superPACs have tarnished the integrity of the country’s democracy through illegal and corrupt activities. Tester has consistently battled irresponsible decision-making in Washington throughout his career.

 

This article by Fredreka Schouten of USA Today also confirms that End Citizens United is well on its way to raising the money needed to get more democrats elected in congress in the upcoming midterm election cycle. Many of the group’s donors “feel like the system is rigged against them, where those who write the biggest checks get the biggest say.”

 

End Citizens United spokesman Adam Bozzi has said that they have built closer relations with campaign-finance watchdogs who emphasize grassroots political activism over collecting political cash. His organization along with two dozen other groups have been tough on Republican senators who have received campaign contributions from donors such as Donald Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her wealthy family.

 

In the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election, Democrats are deeply unhappy with Donald Trump’s win and his agendas. With the help of its donors, End Citizens United will continue to fight against big money in politics.
