By revealing the “Big Money 20”, End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller began the campaigning season for the 2-18 Midterms in earnest. The group of 20 Republicans who have been guilty of accepting the most funding from special interest groups was named and shamed by Muller as she set out to show the voters of the U.S. which politicians were backed by so-called “dark money”. T&his is just the latest step in the continued attempts of Tiffany Muller and End Citizens United to bring about election finance reform which many believe has taken democracy out of the American political sector.
Happy #PrimaryDay! Today’s important for Ohioans—it’s crucial that we make our voices heard.

End Citizens United came into being in 2015 with the overall aim of repealing the Citizens United decision of 2010 which allowed the almost unlimited funding of political parties and candidates by mega-donors and special interest groups. Over the course of the 2018 Midterms, End Citizens United hopes to back the more than 70 candidates from the Democratic party or left-leaning independents including some of the most famous liberal politicians currently serving in Washington D.C. including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
The PAC is not only looking to back some of the most famous left-leaning politicians in the U.S. but also to take on the cause of seemingly impossible to win elections. Prior to the 2018 Midterms, End Citizens United built its reputation by backing some of the candidates responsible for the most amazing special election victories since the arrival of President Donald Trump in The White House; End Citizens United played a key role in the special election victory of Doug Jones over former conservative judge Roy Moore in January 2018 as the reputation of the PAC grown over recent years.
As a growing influence in left-leaning political circles, End Citizens United is already being courted by those who are positioning themselves for a Presidential run in 2020. Kirsten Gillibrand, the New York Senator is one of those who has already identified the cause of election funding as a major one in the upcoming elections of 2018 and 2020 and promised not to accept special interest funding throughout the current election cycle. Gillibrand has turned her back on more than $750,000 in funding from special interest groups as she positions herself for a potential Presidential run and hopes to attract younger voters with the aid of End Citizens United.
