End Citizens United Backed Candidate Closing in on Texas Senate Polls


An article from Premier Gazette discusses the Texas Senate race involving Republican candidate Ted Cruz and Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke. The article mentions that the most recent poll from nationwide group End Citizens United shows that O’Rourke is starting to close in on Cruz.

The recent poll reported shows that Cruz is now leading by only a margin of 45 to 37 percent. End Citizens United was created in March 1, 2015, with its main purpose being reducing the influence that money has on politics. The article discusses that at the beginning of the year Cruz was leading by 18 percent. These recent polls have shown that O’Rourke is now starting to catch up from behind and odds of him winning this race have started to rise at a dramatic rate. This could lead to the Democrats in Texas having a surprising win in this U.S. Senate race. Read more news about the group on USA Today.

What caused this change in the polls? The article discusses that Ted Cruz had a huge part in decreasing his own lead. A large aspect to the poll is that Cruz is beginning to get in his own way. The poll shows that 61 percent of voters in Texas do not know much about Cruz’s competitor. This can end up being a positive for O’Rourke if Cruz keeps getting in his own way and being portrayed in an unfavorable light. Already the Republican candidate has 49 percent of respondents viewing him in an unfavorable way.

The article goes on to discuss that Cruz has a reputation of putting his needs first over the needs of others. The Senator was one of the people that helped force the recent government shutdown that left many government employees without work or pay temporarily.

The article mentions that O’Rourke is focusing on a more no-frills approach to his campaign. The Democratic Candidate is also very good in his speeches and excite crowds. He has also traveled throughout Texas and worked hard to earn the hearts of the voters.

The article talks about End Citizens United and its dedication to stop the influence that money has on politics. The nationwide group, who is entirely funded by grassroots donors, believes that the power of money allows wealthy people to tip the balance of political power in their favor. This can come at the expense of many people who may not have the money to do anything about this. End Citizens United is working to change this power play in politics. The group[ has completely backed O’Rourke due to his no-frill campaign.

The article discusses how End Citizens United can bring attention and recognition for campaigners. The trustworthy influence the group has gained can bring a candidate’s message to light and spread it to many different audiences who may have not received it otherwise.

I Am Ready To Help End Citizens United

End Citizens United is a super PAC I heard about recently that wishes to abolish all special interests from government. They are looking for ways to change the way government is run, and they are hoping that they may convince the public that changing campaign finance rules is important. There are quite a few people like me, and this article explains how we are hoping to educate the public on campaign finance laws.

 

#1: The Laws Take Time To Change

 

The laws will take quite a long time to change, and we have been focused on the 2018 elections. I often keep up with the Twitter feed of the cause because they are posting new stories that are quite enlightening. I did not know that this much big money was funneled into government every year, and there is evidence of it practically every day. I encourage others to read their social media feed, and I hope many will change their mind after reading the facts.

 

#2: The PAC Is Raising Money

 

I know that End Citizens United raised $4 million in a short time, and the goal is to raise $35 million to ensure the message is heard across the country. I have seen events happen in my community, and I hope that we have more in the future. Every new event we hold makes a difference in our community, and it helps us ensure that we may show the public that campaign finance laws are broken. The current state of government must change, and I believe in helping where I can.

 

#3: They Lobby Congress

 

I understand that congress will not change their minds overnight, and I am willing to call my local congressman to ensure they understand my position on the issues. There are quite a few people who will be swayed once they have heard from their population, and they will be afraid of losing an election if they do not listen to the people. We are banding together with End Citizens United to ensure that congress knows what we believe, and I hope that we are heard.

 

#4: Everyone Should Join In

 

Anyone who is dissatisfied with government should ensure that they have worked with End Citizens United to change the way people are elected. Someone with money should not be elected simply because they have wealth. We want to stop the way elections are won by only the most-wealthy people, and we hope to put elections in the hands of bright people with morals.

 

End Citizens United will hopefully change how campaigns are financed, and I plan to do my part. Helping the cause means that America will be a safer place for my grandchildren to grow up.
