The dark political money has since been circulating in the system. Currently, over 325, 000 people are registered to End Citizens United. With the focus facing out big money from the American political system, End Citizens United has managed to amass more than $4 million in three months.

This money would be significant to the organization given that in the 2016 general elections, End Citizens United spent $25 million. This was the first election with PAC in office. According to the president of End Citizens United Tiffany Muller, more than 100,000 individuals have contributed towards the cause of electing political reformists.

 

Donations

 

In 2017, 40,000 have made contributions for the first time. End Citizens United is dedicated to ensuring that America elects campaign finance reformists to the Congress. The organization has been feeling that only the wealthy have a voice in political arenas.
