End Citizens United is a political action committee that is mainly focused on bringing in big money out of politics. The group was able to raise over $4 million in the first three months this year. They estimate that they will earn a total of $35 million before the 2018 election for congress. That would mean a $25 million increase since the 2016 election..
During the first quarter of this year there were about 100,000 people that contributed to the PAC, of those 40,000 gave for the first time. The average contribution that was made to the PAC this year was $12. This has been one busy year for the election.
It has been urged in the past few weeks for contributors to help donate $500,000 towards the company of Democrat Jon Ossoff. The Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United Decision is what the groups name is referring to. The group was able to open up the doors to union and corporate donations. End Citizens United is not able to except donations that are higher than $5,000 and also operates as a traditional PAC. Adam Bozzi, the groups spokesman, has said that the group has been able to build more ties to campaign-finance groups.
