The Texas Democrat, Beto O’Rourke has recently become a viral sensation because of his response to questions about the controversy of kneeling during the national anthem. Beto O’Rourke has become a popular candidate after making his way to every county in Texas in an epic grassroots campaign. Beto O’Rourke is being backed by the traditional PAC, End Citizens United in an effort to unseat the sitting Republican Ted Cruz, who was initially elected by a grassroots effort created by the conservative Tea Party.
Since his election, Ted Cruz has been identified by End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller as one of the top recipients of so-called “dark money” from special interest groups. The PAC operates in a traditional manner with no donor permitted to give more than $5,000 per election cycle. Tiffany Muller has often explained her belief in the loss of the democratic process because of the influx of money into politics because of the controversial Citizens United Supreme Court decision. The 2010 decision allowed corporations and Super PACs the chance to be treated as individuals with their rights secured under the U.S. Constitution. Read more news about the group on USA Today.
At the outset of his campaign for the Senate, Beto O’Rourke was trailing the former Presidential candidate by upwards of 10 points, largely because the Democrat’s message was not known in the Lone Star State. The attempt to unseat Ted Cruz seemed like a hopeless task, but the arrival of End Citizens United on the campaign trail has made a major difference.
During the 2016 Presidential Election, End Citizens United learned the most successful campaign strategy for Democrats in traditionally Republican states was to focus on the issue of election finance. In an End Citizens United poll, Beto O’Rourke jumped into a narrow lead when centrist voters were told of the wish to reform the election finance rules Ted Cruz has used to further his on aims over those of Texan voters.
