A tall skinny man with a deep booming voice is coming for Ted Cruz’s Texas senatorial seat. The Democratic candidate for Senate hails from El Paso, Texas, which he says is one of the safest cities in America. He has been serving in Congress faithfully and an End Citizens United poll shows him in a virtual tie with the conservative incumbent. The group’s financial information is available on OpenSecrets.Org.
He comes with the full endorsement of a group known as End Citizens United. This political action committee was put together just after Citizens United dropped. The ludicrous Supreme Court decision threatens to destroy our democracy as we know it.
End Citizens United and Beto O’Rourke will work hand-in-hand to fight back against the disastrous effects of this decision. Essentially, the court ruled that corporations have First Amendment rights because they are recognized as individual citizens. They are allowed to express their First Amendment rights through the spending of cash to influence elections.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has been a proponent of Citizens United. He believes that corporations should have a bigger voice than the individual voter. It all makes sense when you look at the source of his donations. He receives millions upon millions of dollars from corporations all over the country so that he can go to the Senate to defend their best interests.
Beto O’Rourke only takes political donations from individuals much like Bernie Sanders did in the 2016 presidential primary. This ensures that the Democratic Senatorial candidate from Texas is not influenced by big business. Instead, these small donations keep him focused on working for the people of Texas and their best interests.
End Citizens United would like to get the word out about this critical difference between the candidates. O’Rourke believes that informed voters will make the right choice in November. He believes that Texas citizens want their voices restored in the wake of this destructive precedent.
A win for O’Rourke would be a win for End Citizens United and the people of the United States. But they have a long way to go and O’Rourke could use your help with a small donation online today. Visit their page on Facebook.
