End Citizens United was formed in 2015 – five years after the controversial Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. F.E.C. The decision made it possible for corporations to buy elections by enabling them to spend near unlimited amounts of money on political candidates. Tiffany Muller, President and Executive Director of End Citizens United, is working alongside others in the political action committee to reverse the decision.
If they can’t reverse the decision, removing prominent Republicans from office may do the job. Big Money 20 is a list of Republican incumbents who earned their seat with donations from rich corporations. This list by End Citizens United is ever changing; several incumbents on the list have already been unseated. The Big Money 20 list includes Ted Cruz;Texas, Paul Ryan;Wisconsin, Duncan Hunter;California, and other Big Money Republicans.
The PAC doesn’t only oppose politicians; there are also certain politicians that they support. End Citizens United has endorsed Beto O’Rourke, Conor Lamb, and most recently Kirsten Gillibrand. End Citizens United only supports candidates that do not accept large amounts of money from corporations.
By replacing incumbent Republicans with Democrats, the PAC intends to give the power of democracy back to the common citizen.
