The traditional PAC, End Citizens United has been growing in importance for Democrats and those concerned by out of control election spending since the group was established in 2015. T
he PAC has become so important to left-leaning politicians and groups that it is now seen as one of those responsible for setting the standards by which future Presidential candidates are measured; one of the most influential aspects of the work of End Citizens United has been the financial pledge of election campaign expenses signed by many liberal politicians as the race for the 2018 Midterms gets underway.
The pledge created by End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller explains a candidate who signs will not accept funding from special interest groups and so-called “mega-donors”. Creating the campaign funding pledge was one of the main aspects of the work of Tiffany Muller when the PAC was established from its Washington D.C. base with the aim of overturning the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision. The rising level of influence and importance to Democrats and left-leaning liberals has been seen in the fact the buildup to the 2016 Presidential election saw just three Democrats sign but over 70 have already pledged to reject special interest group funding by April 2018.

Some of the most important names to the left of U.S. politics have already made their way to the End Citizens United PAC and shown their support for the election campaign finance work of the group. Those who have become linked to the PAC which caps member donations at $5,000 per election cycle including Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand; the case of Gillibrand shows the importance of being on the correct side of progressive issues in the buildup to both the 2018 Midterms and the 2020 Presidential election which the New York Senator hopes to play a major role in.
Those around Gillibrand revealed she is looking to position herself for a Presidential run in 2020 and believes the issue of campaign financing will be a major in the coming elections. It has been reported, Senator Gillibrand will lose as much as $800,000 in financing by turning down special interest group funding but feels any decision to run for the Presidency should be accompanied by a high moral grounding which is offered by End Citizens United.
