End Citizens United Makes Key Endorsements Ahead Of 2018 midterm Elections

Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke is making a surprising run for the Texas U.S. Senate seat currently held by Ted Cruz, a corporate-cash-bloated politician who was once seen as impossible to beat. But recent polls show that O’Rourke is closing in on Cruz. Better yet, the plucky Congressman is doing it without accepting corporate cash or donations from Super PACs.

That’s why Beto O’Rourke has the endorsement of End Citizens United, a grassroots organization that is determined to get Big Money out of American politics.

End Citizens united was formed in 2015 as a direct result of the now notorious 2010 Supreme Court ruling that came to be known as Citizens United. It ran a wrecking ball through U.S. campaign finance regulations.

The result has been an enormous corruption of the American political system. End Citizens United says that, if average American voters want their votes to count and have their voices heard in Washington, Citizens United must be overturned.

One step toward that goal is the election of as many pro-reform candidates as possible. O’Rourke of Texas is one. Another is Jacky Rosen of Nevada. She currently holds Nevada’s 3rd District Congressional seat. Now she’s running to be a U.S. Senator. She also has been endorsed by ECU because she refuses Big Money and Dark Money contributions to her campaign.

Rep. Rosen is running against GOP fat-cat Sen. Dean Heller whom ECU lists among its “Big Money 20” — the worst offenders in Congress of campaign finance laws.

End Citizens United is also endorsing Elissa Slotkin. She is a former CIA agent seeking the 8th Congressional seat in Michigan. Slotkin’s opponent, incumbent Mike Bishop, is another member of the infamous Big Money 20.

Andy Kim running for Congress in New Jersey gets End Citizens United endorsement against incumbent Tom MacArthur. He has been called a “Poster Boy” for special interests after he cobbled together the cruel TrumpCare bill. Andy Kim is a Rhodes Scholar who refuses PAC and corporate cash. He is challenging MacArthur for New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional district slot.
