End Citizens United believes Democrats must fight against a rigged system. A political group is trying to remove big money from politics with the endorsements of three Democratic candidates. They have declared campaign finance reform an electoral necessity. They have endorsed Democratic candidates throughout the districts using a platform with a reduction in the importance of money.
End Citizens United believes Washington has been infiltrated with moneyed interests, and the Democratic candidates require a fresh approach. The message from End Citizens United for the 2018 Democratic candidates is to remember campaign finance reform. Political funding ties into healthcare and jobs, and these critical issues have been slipping away from the Democrats.

A new poll from September was conducted in fifty of the House battleground districts. In terms of importance, the role of special interests was placed second by independent voters only to national security. This is consistent with the polling done by End Citizens United for the last eighteen months. The group wants to get rid of the jargon, and speak of special interests plainly and honestly. The trust of the voters has been eroded by the vast amount of money spent in politics. This has impacted critical issues including lowering the cost of healthcare, increasing wages, and jobs. End Citizens United feels the Republicans are no longer in sync with their voters, and this creates an opportunity for the Democrats. They do not want their voices diminished by special interests. The voters want to see the voice given back to the American people.
End Citizens United has collected the first $4 million of their $35 million goal. These contributions were made by approximately 100,000 people and many of them had never given before. They are fighting back against groups who believe in whoever can write them the largest check. The Democrats are furious over Donald Trump winning the election, and are fighting his nominees and agenda. This includes Judge Neil Gorsuch of the Supreme Court. End Citizens United is encouraging donations for the Democrat Jon Ossoff. They want him to fill the vacant seat in Atlanta vacated by Tom Price. They are looking closely at the 2018 races to decide which ones they will become involved with. As a traditional PAC, End Citizens United is unable to accept any donation more than $5,000. This did not prevent them from reaching the highest ranks of Democratic groups last year. Their fundraising is considered aggressive but it has proved effective. They have been building links to the campaign-finance groups. Their collaborations have included over 24 groups and have proved extremely effective. They urged the Republican Senators who had accepted donations for their campaigns from the Devos family to recuse themselves from placing their votes for Betsy Devos as the Educational Secretary for President Trump.
