The growth of the End Citizens United PAC has been one which has grown in stature over the course of the last three years since it was established in 2015 under the leadership of President Tiffany Muller.
The overall aim of End Citizens United is to overturn the divisive Citizens United decision of the Supreme Court in 2010; End Citizens United has been fighting to achieve this aim from its base in Washington D.C. by backing Democrats friendly to their cause during elections from 2016 onwards.
Making an almost instant impact on the U.S. political landscape can be hard to do but End Citizens United was providing support for the campaign of Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election and has continued to build support among established Democrats over the last few years. The 2018 Midterms are the latest test of the skills of End Citizens United as they have been building a growing list of members to donate and support the cause of protecting election finance regulations and enacting reform in terms of Super PACs and “mega-donors”.

Building a campaign for the 2018 Midterms has been a mission of End Citizens United for a number of months and the first news of this was released to the public around Thanksgiving in 2017. The release of the “Big Money 20” list by End Citizens United marked the start of the 2018 Midterm election campaigning season as the Republicans accepting the most funding from special interest groups were targeted by the traditional PAC to be unseated during the coming elections.
The “Big Money 20” list revealed by Tiffany Muller has been trimmed over the course of the campaign to become only 15 as a number of Republicans have dropped out of the race for reelection when faced with the problem of their dark money links being revealed. The decision by House Speaker Paul Ryan to retire from politics has come at a time when the growing issues of special interest groups and universal healthcare have come to the fore; Tiffany Muller was quick to explain the issue of lost healthcare for millions of Americans will be part of the legacy of Ryan as one of the leaders of the Republican Party.
