End Citizens United // Let America Vote Endorses John Fetterman for U.S. Senate

May 26, 2022

Fetterman has stood up to special interests and is refusing to take corporate PAC money so he can fight for the people of Pennsylvania

End Citizens United // Let America Vote today endorsed Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman for U.S. Senate.

“There are few people who have fought as passionately and successfully for the people of Pennsylvania as John Fetterman. He never stands down from doing what’s right for Pennsylvanians whether it’s working to empower small businesses and bringing in new jobs as the Mayor of Braddock or taking on the establishment as Lt. Governor and saving Pennsylvania taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars by cutting unnecessary expenses. In the Senate, he’ll continue standing up to wealthy political insiders and special interests. He’s not taking corporate PAC money, so the people of Pennsylvania know he’s accountable to them–and only them,” said End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller. “Unlike his extremist, chaotic Republican opponents who have a record of putting their business interests and their corporate special interest backers ahead of what’s right for Pennsylvania, John Fetterman will work to put more money in the pockets of Pennsylvania families, fight for good-paying jobs, and protect Pennsylvania from corporate greed and exploitation. We’re thrilled to endorse John Fetterman for Senate and can’t wait to get him elected this November.”

“Thank you to End Citizens United and Let America Vote for their endorsement,” said Lt. Gov. John Fetterman. “I am proud that my campaign has never taken a dime of corporate PAC money. We’re running this race the right way, with over 600,000 small-dollar donations from individuals across Pennsylvania and the country. When I get to D.C., we’re going to pass comprehensive voting rights legislation, get big money out of politics, and protect the right to vote. I am honored for this endorsement, and I look forward to working together and flipping this seat blue.”

No matter who emerges from the chaotic and bruising GOP primary, Fetterman will be facing off against a wealthy opponent who is beholden to wealthy, out-of-state special interests. There was $70 million spent in the GOP primary. Whoever wins the GOP primary will be indebted to their wealthy dark money allies who barely carried them across the finish line, and will want to go to the Senate to fight for their special interest backers, not working Pennsylvanians. There will be a clear choice in this election between Fetterman, who’s unbought and accountable only to the people of Pennsylvania versus either Connecticut hedge fund executive Dave McCormick or New Jersey resident and voter Mehmet Oz who have focused their race on outdoing each other on extreme rhetoric and divisiveness.
