Washington, DC — End Citizens United (ECU) today endorsed Xochitl Torres Small for Congress in New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District. Torres Small is committed to reforming the rigged system, and supports bills including the DISCLOSE Act and Government By The People Act to increase transparency and accountability in our elections.
“In Washington, mega-donors dominate the conversation and have a tight grip over too many politicians. It’s corrupting the system and leaving New Mexico families behind,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller. “Xochitl is committed to reforming the rigged system by curbing the influence of Big Money special interests in politics. We’re proud to endorse Xochitl and look forward to helping her win in November.”
“Too often in Washington the voices of constituents are drowned out by the interests of big money in politics. In Congress, I will work everyday to bring local stakeholders together to develop community-driven solutions that help to improve the quality of life for all in southern New Mexico. I am honored to receive the endorsement of End Citizens United, an organization who has made it its mission to empower constituents by fighting to overturnCitizens United and take big money out of politics,” said Torres Small.
With a recent Gallup poll showing that 90% of Americans believe the government is working for the benefit of a few big interests, a robust reform agenda is critical to winning support from voters, particularly independents.
The endorsement will help Torres Small compete with high-spending special interest groups by connecting her with its 6,200 grassroots members in NM-02, as well as its national network of 400,000 small-dollar donors.
ECU is an entirely grassroots-funded organization dedicated to electing members of Congress who will fight to get Big Money out of politics so Congress focuses on all of us and not only its biggest special interest donors.
