End Citizens United Projects Beto O’Rourke May Upset Ted Cruz

Look out Ted Cruz, here comes Beto O’ Rourke. According to a poll by political action committee End Citizens United, O’Rourke is catching up to the Republican incumbent. In an election year that has already seen thirty-four Republican seats go Democrat, such a story is beginning to trend. Although Cruz is still in the lead to maintain his long-held seat, O’Rourke is gaining momentum and could very well eclipse Cruz before it is all said and done. As Cruz would join a list of long-standing seat holders to be ejected, this election year could prove fruitful for End Citizens United and its quest for campaign reform.

End Citizens United is the offensive response to the 2010 Citizens United vs. FEC Supreme Court ruling. This is the ruling that mandated corporations as people, allowing the unrestricted flow of money into U.S. elections. The ruling gave big business the ability to form PACs and Super-PACs that now influence both minor and major elections. Such an unfettered influence can allow such corporations to buy elections, and then garner legislations that benefits their end game. End Citizens United’ end game is to stop that from happening by revoking the 2010 ruling. Such a large-scale goal cannot be achieved in the legal system, as the highest law of the land already ruled, but that does not mean legislation cannot hamper it. Therefore, ECU uses grassroots funding to advocate for candidates that support election reform. Candidates like Beto O’Rourke.

O’Rourke does not take money from Super-PAC’s and is against unfettered political contributions from corporations. End Citizens United supports reform candidates like him to gain seats. The more seats such candidates win, the more reform-oriented legislation can be passed. ECU was formed in 2015 and has worked hard every election year to get its candidates elected. Most of these candidates are Democrat, as the left side of the political spectrum is more geared to reform. O’Rourke has a good shot, and certainly would be a jewel for ECU’s election crown, but even if Cruz retains his seat they will not stop fighting for what they believe in.

End Citizens United

End Citizens United Reveals the Voices of Americans in a Report of a Recent PPP Poll

Voices of the American people are heard clearly in a recent poll conducted by PPP involving interference in last year’s presidential election and President Trump firing of James Comey, former F.B.I. Director of the United States. Political Action Committee, End Citizens United (ECU) reveals the results of the poll in percentages of Americans who support an independent investigation and have faith in the country’s political system. Participants in the poll were asked their opinions about Comey losing his job, and, if they believe our democracy was threatened by foreign interference. The results were announced by End Citizens United, in a May 15th, 2017 press release. Tiffany Muller, the executive director and president of ECU said the poll shows the American people’s faith in the government and political system is very low.

Muller also said the people believes there was some involvement of Russia interfering in the presidential election, thereby, compromising democracy in our country. The majority of the poll participants opposed President Donald Trump firing James Comey, last Tuesday, May 9th. Americans greatest concern is that the individual who once headed the investigation is now fired. PPP’s poll shows 61 percent of Americans support the investigation into Russia and Trump’s campaign interference in the 2016 election. End Citizens United and their members are pushing for an active independent investigation for truth and to restore trust of the American people. The PAC Group and Every Voice are joining forces and acting immediately to keep the investigation active and their members informed.

End Citizens United successfully raised $4 million in contributions, during the first quarter of 2017. Since the PAC was established in 2015, the group has raised more than $29 million to support Democratic candidates, including former Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. ECU set a goal to bring in over $35 million before Congress elections, in 2018. They had enough funds to cover a recent campaign launch, Independent Investigation Now and pay for advertisements. Every Voice helped to launch the campaign and joins ECU in pressuring Senators to demand an investigation of Trump’s campaign and Russia interferences in the election.
