End Citizens United Backs Beto O’Rourke For Senate

Beto O’Rourke, the dashing young Democratic congressman from El Paso, Texas, if giving Ted Cruz a run for his money for the 2018 midterms. Cruz carries with him the power of the incumbent and he’s the GOP senator from a red state. But Beto O’Rourke has come out of relative anonymity to pull up just a few points behind Ted. Read more news about the group on USA Today.

End Citizens United recently published a poll showing the two in a virtual tie with just months to go before the election. And Beto has already started earning attack ads from his GOP opponent.

Ted Cruz attacked Beto’s name. It says Robert on his birth certificate but the Democratic politician goes by the nickname Beto. He earned the nickname from his friends growing up in the border city of El Paso where Beto is commonly substituted for Robert. And the attack is ironic seeing as Ted Cruz’s real first name has Raphael let alone the fact that the GOP senator was born in Canada. Ted goes by his middle name which is Edward. Much like Beto, Raphael Edward Cruz shortens his name from Edward to Ted. It’s the pot calling the kettle black and then some.

But End Citizens United is backing up the Democratic candidate from El Paso, Texas, for his fundraising efforts. Beto O’Rourke proudly denies any company or corporation the right to donate to his campaign. He only takes small donations from individual citizens. It is a technique that was made famous by the fundraising juggernaut Bernie Sanders during the 2016 primaries.

Unlike his opponent, Raphael Edward Cruz is taking massive amounts of money from corporations for his campaign. This will only end up with Ted representing those corporations in the Senate. Some of those corporations aren’t even based in Texas.

Meanwhile, O’Rourke will fight for the people. After all, they fueled is campaign and that is who he is beholden to. And End Citizens United, the political action committee founded in 2015, likes it that way. End Citizens United endorses candidates who promise to fight against the horrible Supreme Court decision called Citizens United. They’ve found a powerful ally in O’Rourke.
