The upcoming elections are going to give people a chance to fight against the influence or big money in our politics. People are tired of seeing politicians fight for those who are explicitly against our own interests. This is why End Citizens United was formed. It’s a PAC focused on trying to do everything it can to make sure that people are better equipped when they decide they want to fight the influence of big money in their lives. This isn’t going to be an easy thing to do, but it will certainly be remembered for years to come. There is a wave ready to take politics in a bold new direction. It just needs the support necessary to grow into something more fierce.
There are plenty of reasons to look at the work of the Big Money 20 and feel outraged. This is a group of some of the most insidious politicians out there. Fortunately, thy are very vulnerable as they are incumbents in areas with very low support for the way things are. People absolutely want to see things change and they are willing to support candidates that will do their best to make sure we see a very different way of handling business. There is going to be something big happening this November and End Citizens United wants to back it entirely.

The Big Money 20 are located mostly in blue states and this is why they are particularly great targets for elections according to actionnetwork.org. They won’t be able to fight as well as others out there and they simply don’t have an energized base willing to go up to bat for them. When you factor in the reality that they are exceptionally weakened by the current trends we’re seeing in politics, it’s going to be a certain victory for the Democrats and those who want to fight big money in politics.
We are going to see some resistance to this surge. There are going to be big donations coming in from corporations and they’ll want to do anything they can to stop the current rise of those who want to see politicians represent the interests of the people who elect them. Nobody is going to do more to help make sure the people win than End Citizens United. PACs like this were formed for just this occasion. Now it’s time for them to spring into action in our moment of need.
