One of the most recognized organizations in the United States, End Citizens United continues to advocate its drive for campaign finance reform.
The political action committee (PAC) is a non-profit group, which was established in 2015 and funded by grassroots donors, to keep a tight rein on the impact of campaign money in US elections.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, End Citizens United works towards electing pro-reform candidates as well as ballot measure movements to pass reform laws.
Its most crucial ambition is to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the 2010 Supreme Court decision that deals with the regulation of political campaign spending by organizations.
End Citizens United has announced its endorsement of Democratic candidate Randy Bryce for Congress, according to a story at http://chronicleweek.com/2017/10/randy-bryce-is-the-perfect-fit-for-end-citizens-united.
Bryce, who will be running against the current Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in 2018, is receiving simply $25 per individual campaign donation. Bryce, who comes from a working class background, has said he is committed to support campaign finance reform.
Bryce currently serves as President of the Wisconsin Veteran’s Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and as chair of the Democratic party of Wisconsin Veterans Caucus.
End Citizens United believes the congressional race is one of the most prominent elections to watch.
Democratic party nominee for president, Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, US Senate nominee from Wisconsin and Elizabeth Warren, US Senate nominee from Massachusetts were some of the candidates previously endorsed by the PAC.
The group is also working on re-examining spending by foreign countries in political campaigns. While this is strictly prohibited, some types of donations have already taken place.

For example, while the exact amount is not known, a foreign government has purchased ads on Facebook as a way to obstruct US elections.
The story also pointed out a company owned by Chinese nationalists donated more than $1 million while a Mexican businessman also donated money to a Super PAC to impede the elections. End Citizens United considers these donations to be merely the beginning.
End Citizens United acknowledges everyone must be aware that foreign government spending is occurring during US elections and take actions to end the practice.
The PAC has been actively working to inform and alert the public about foreign government spending.
During the first quarter of this year, the group received average contributions of $12 totaling $4 million.
