End Citizens United is a Democratic political action committee that concentrates on getting big money out of politics. Late last year, it announced that it had chosen 20 Republicans (who it calls “Big Money 20”) who they say favored personal money interests over their constituents. They will focus on ousting this Big Money 20 this year. This list of 20 includes the following politicians: Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Senator Dean Heller of Nevada, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Representative Mike Bishop of Michigan, Representative Rod Blum of Iowa, Representative Mike Bost of Illinois, Representative Mike Coffman of Colorado, Representative Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania, Representative Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey, Representative Duncan Hunter of California. Representative Will Hurd of Texas, Representative Darrell Issa of California, Representative Tom MacArthur of New Jersey, Representative Pat Meehan of Pennsylvania, Representative Erik Paulsen of Minnesota, Representative Rob Pittenger of North Carolina, Representative Dana Rohrbacher of California, Representative Peter Roskam of Illinois, Representative Claudia Tenney of New York, and Representative Mimi Walters of California.

This year, ECU plans to raise $35 million to the end of the goal of affecting the upcoming reelections of these Republicans. ECU very gladly accepts donations, but by law PACs cannot accept anything over $5,000. Although it is forbidden to accept more than this, ECU is very clear that it wholeheartedly depends on these small donations to do what it does. And there is clearly much interest in the voting population. Studies have shown that reducing special interest money is one of the top priorities of most independent voters.
End Citizens United is led by its President and Executive Director, Tiffany Muller. When she first came on board the ECU team she already had much experience helping the progressive grassroots effectively attain results. And her time in leadership has proven extremely successful. She has helped ECU grow to 3 million nationwide members and helped it raise over $25 million. In its 2018 drive, she hopes to help ECU both drive out special interest politicians and to help give more attention to finance reform.
We need to treat the cause not just the symptoms. Our campaign finance system has loopholes that allows countries like Russia to meddle in our elections. https://t.co/Y7d1g560ns
