Talking to the typical American voter in 2018 one of the major talking points many want addressing is the rising power of special interest groups and the mega-donors who have made the U.S. political landscape their personal playground in recent years.
Republican donors such as the Koch Brothers are now in the firing line for the traditional PAC, End Citizens United from its Washington D.C. base as it spearheads the drive for a return to traditional funding options capped at $5,000 per member each election cycle; End Citizens United completes its work as a traditional PAC with limited funding from supporters but no input on policy decisions from donors who are all limited to providing just $5,000 per election cycle.
In the period of success for End Citizens United which has taken place since the 2016 Presidential election, the PAC has been influential in turning the tide of support for the Democratic Party against the use of special interest funding through the introduction of a funding pledge. End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller has revealed the Washington D.C-based PAC had less than ten Democrats and Independents sign the pledge in 2016 but more than 70 have already pledged their support for the grassroots funding drive for the 2018 Midterms.
The rising influence of End Citizens United has been growing in various election cycles with the PAC as they have been developing their skills in electioneering as the group has been looking for the best message to send out. During the 2016 election campaign, End Citizens United discovered the best message to deliver was one explaining the need for election finance reform instead of the traditional Democratic liberal message which has been developed over the last few decades.
In the Texas constituency of Ted Cruz, Democrat Beto O’Rourke has been bridging what seemed original to be an insurmountable lead for the former Presidential candidate and member of the “Big Money 20” list. End Citizens United discovered that although O’Rourke’s political opinions are largely unknown to the people of Texas an eight-point deficit in the race for the Senate was turned into a lead for O’Rourke once the issue of “Big Money” in politics was raised and the more than $1.5 million the Republican has accepted over the years was discussed.
