End Citizens United (ECU), a Political Action Committee subsidized by the grassroots, was founded on the 1st of March 2015. End Citizens United is dedicated in refuting the catastrophic impact of Citizens United and revolutionizing the finance system of election campaigns.
The ultimate objective of ECU is to put an into to the Big Money within the United States politics, and resolved the manipulated political scheme through the elevation of this particular problem in the national conversation, taking measures in the passing of state ballots, and the election of pro-reform campaign finance champions. End Citizens United will collaborate closely with the aforementioned champions to terminate the undisclosed and unlimited money in politics, as well as to upend Citizens United.
The PAC will strive towards this objective by means of:
-Utilizing the membership of grassroots to portray political power on the concerns of money within politics.
-Employing ballot campaign measures for pro-reform laws in the various states.
-Broaching the matter of money in politics as an important national issue.
-Nominating pro-reform candidates.

Lately, ECU exposed the 20 Republican congress Members it would focus on in 2018. ECU labels them as the “Big Money 20,” which is a group of republicans have given special considerations by opposing finance campaign reform, backing legislation that profited their big donors, accepting big donations, and favoring groups or individuals more than their constituents.
The Big Money 20 are as follows:
Se. Ted Cruz (Texas), Sen Dean Heller (Nevada), House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin), Rep Mike Bishop (Michigan), Rep Rod Blum (Iowa), Rep. Mike Bost (Illinois), Rep. Mike Coffman (Colorado), Rep. Ryan Costello (Pennsylvania), Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (New Jersey), Rep. Duncan Hunter (California), Rep. Will Hurd (Texas), Rep. Darell Issa (California), Rep. Tom MacArthur (New Jersey), Rep. Pat Meehan (Pennsylvania), Rep. Erik Paulsen (Minnesota), Rep. Rob Pittinger (North Carolina), Rep. Dana Rohrbacher (California), Rep. Peter Roskam (Illinois), Rep. Claudia Tenney (New York), Rep. Mimi Walters (California).
ECU’s goal is to procure and expend $35 million on the re-election races for the 2018 election round, this is an outpouring of $10 million extra compared to the $25 million that the PAC spent in 2016. Majority of the Big Money 20 re-electionists will have a difficult time winning the election; however, most independent analysts do not consider Ryan or Cruz vulnerable.
Since ECU is a conventional political action committee, it does not accept donations that exceed $5,000. The fundraising objective is based on the small contributions of its over 3 million members.
