End Citizens United and Let America Vote Endorse Slate of Candidates Committed to Fighting the Status Quo in Washington

Jul 30, 2020

All six candidates are rejecting corporate PAC money

End Citizens United (ECU) and Let America Vote (LAV) today endorsed six candidates in House and Senate races across the country. All six candidates reject corporate PAC money and support critical reform legislation like the For the People Act, the most sweeping anti-corruption, voting rights and ethics reform legislation since Watergate.

The full list of endorsed candidates includes: Celeste Williams (AR-03), Dani Brzozowski (IL-16), Pat Hackett (IN-02), Quinn Nystrom (MN-08), Nancy Goroff (NY-01) and Abby Broyles (OK-Senate).

“These six candidates are running reform-focused campaigns to stand up to Big Money special interests in Washington,” said ECU and LAV President Tiffany Muller. “By rejecting corporate PAC money, they’re proving to their constituents that they won’t let corporate special interests get in the way of making progress on critical issues, like lowering the cost of prescription drugs, combating climate change and ending gun violence. We’re proud to endorse these six candidates, and we look forward to helping them win.”

ECU and LAV recently merged to combat the two biggest challenges facing our democracy: Big Money and voter suppression. ECU is dedicated to getting Big Money out of politics and fixing the rigged system in Washington so that the government works for all Americans. LAV is building a grassroots effort to fight back against voter suppression and protect every American’s right to vote.

ECU and LAV is an entirely grassroots-funded organization that works to end our rigged political system by electing reform champions, passing meaningful legislative reforms, and elevating these issues in the national conversation. ECU has more than four million members nationwide, including 5,300 in AR-03, 5,500 in IL-16, 5,500 in IN-02, 6,600 in MN-08, 9,100 in NY-01 and 22,100 in Oklahoma. In 2018, over 1,000 LAV grassroots volunteers knocked on over 340,000 doors, made 112,000 calls, and sent 341,000 texts to help elect 100 pro-democracy leaders.
