End Citizens United is a political actions committee (PAC) looking to push out the worst members of Congress. The committee raises money to help fund the elections of more qualified candidates. The committee headquarters are located in Washington, D.C itself. Tiffany Muller is the President and Executive Director of End Citizens United.
This year, End Citizens United expects to raise around $35 million for election races. The committee is an original PAC meaning that it can only accept individual donations of less than $5000. This means the committee is relying on over 3 million individual donations. Recently, End Citizens United endorsed Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for the U.S. Senate. By endorsing one candidate, one current member of the Senate would need to be knocked out of office.

This is where the committee’s Big Money 20 comes in. The Big Money 20 are members of Congress (House of Representatives or Senate) that the committee says are favoring special interests over their own constituents. These special interests include actions like taking big donations that helped to prevent reforms. Key members of the Big Money 20 include Senator Ted Cruz, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and Senator Dean Huller.
The overall mission of End Citizens United is to limit the untraceable spending by billionaires and special interest groups in U.S elections. The committee aims to fight back with grassroots funding and fix the problem of big money in politics. The most recent committee action was to endorse Dr. Hiral Tipirneni running for an open seat in Arizona vacated by former Congressman Trent Franks. Tipirneni is rejecting all corporate PAC money in her campaign making her a perfect candidate for End Citizens United to endorse. Tipirneni is a highly educated candidate as an emergency room technician which also helps her case for being put in a position of power. Electing seats with candidates such as Tipirneni are how the committee will reach its goals.
