Faced with the need to combat the wealthy Americans who control political arenas through big money, End Citizens United has put aside more than $4 million in the past three months of the year 2017. The PAC , also known as the political action committee is dedicated to amassing approximately $35 million towards the next elections that will be conducted in 2018. The raised amount would be helpful in the elections given that the End Citizens United used $25 million in 2016, during the just concluded presidential elections.

According to the president and executive director of End Citizens United, Tiffany Muller, more than 100,000 people have come forward to contribute to raising the stated amount in show of support.

According to the members of End Citizens United, only the wealthy Americans have influence on the political landscape and policies reforms. Towards that, the team is planning to fight back through supporting one of their own. Mr. Jon Ossoff will run for Congress in 2018. In preparation for this, Ossoff has contributed more than $4 million towards to see him succeed in bagging the seat that was vacated by Tom Prince, who was nominated as the secretary of health and human services. Feeling undermined by the cabinet of President Donald Trump, End Citizens United is committed to ensuring that Ossoff wins come 2018.
