WASHINGTON, D.C. — End Citizens United (ECU) today endorsed Dan McCready for Congress in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional district.
“Too many members of Congress, like Representative Robert Pittenger, are wearing earmuffs made of special interest money. They’re not listening to the people they’re supposed to represent,” said End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller. “Dan McCready is committed to getting unlimited and secret special interest money out of politics so that everyday Americans can have their voices heard. Voters in the district are searching for a leader who will work to unrig the system. We look forward to connecting our grassroots members with McCready’s campaign to help him win this pivotal seat next November.”
“I’m proud to have the endorsement of End Citizens United. Money in politics is the worst part of a broken system. Special interests have far too much power in Washington and there are too many politicians who care more about filling their pockets than serving the people. That system will stay in place until we elect new leaders who will fight to overturn Citizens United,” said Dan McCready.
Dan McCready’s candidacy stands in marked contrast to Representative Pittenger’s, whose name epitomizes the influence of Big Money in politics. While Pittenger looks out for the interests of his mega-donors, McCready, a committed reformer, will fight to unrig the broken system and get Congress working for everyday American families.
ECU’s endorsement will help McCready compete with high-spending special interest groups by connecting him with its nearly 4,500 grassroots members in NC-09, as well as to its national network of 380,000 small-dollar donors. With an average donation of $14, ECU is projected to raise $35 million for the 2018 election cycle.
ECU is a grassroots fueled organization giving a voice to millions of American families. The group is dedicated to overturning Citizens United and passing meaningful campaign finance reform that will return the power of government to the people.
