End Citizens United Continues To Reject Corporate PACs

As part of the election season, End Citizens United recently announced that 111 Democratic candidates had won their respective primaries and advanced to the general election. One thing all these candidates have in common is that they’ve all agreed not to accept any money from corporate PACs. Additionally, they have found that 60 percent of candidates who are attempting to flip seats from red to blue have rejected campaign contributions from big corporations. From various congressional races in Ohio to the hotly-contested Senate race in Texas, Democrats have used their campaign finance reform stance to make Republican candidates appear inferior by comparison. This has caused them to look much more appealing to prospective voters in the general election. Read this article at The Atlantic.

This comes on the heels of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee exceeding their fundraising goal about three months prior to the general election. With over $75 million currently raised, the DCCC is expected to exceed a total sum of $100 million before November 6. End Citizens United is confident the candidates they’ve endorsed will find much success in the midterm elections. End Citizens United is an organization dedicated to overturning the decision of FEC vs. Citizens United and keeping big money out of politics. It is currently estimated that online contributions accounted for a third of the funds raised for the DCCC in the past year and a half.

The tide began to turn for the Democrats in the aftermath of the presidential election when candidates were able to flip six seats from blue to red. Now, with just under two months until the general election, the midterms appear to be looming large over Washington DC as people begin discussing the potential blue wave that may wash over our government. End Citizens United is confident that Democrats will be able to take back the Senate, House and, Congress. They’ve already spent over two and a half million dollars on campaign advertisements alone to show how confident they are in their abilities. However, only time will tell. So we wish them the best of luck in their campaigns and hope they are successful.

Help Ross Abelow Help Homeless Strays Find a Home

Imagine how that little dog is feeling when he is sitting in the dark cold ally watching you eat your thick juicy burger. His little tummy is rumbling from starvation. He is beginning to look emaciated. His ribs are showing and his hair is beginning to fall out. The poor dog can imagine how it would feel to have a decent meal to fill his tummy again. Once upon a time, he had a home. Someone loved him enough to make sure he always had plenty of food and water. Now it is all he can do to find a few bites. The food is usually trashed out of the trash containers. It’s usually unhealthy and unclean but the puppy doesn’t care. He is so hungry that he would eat almost anything. This puppy could have a great life if anyone would take the time to love him. That’s all he wants out of life. Love and food are his need.

How can we help these lost and hungry animals? Yes, we might buy a bag of dog food to leave for the dogs. This bag off food would probably not last one day with the number of dogs hungry in the city. We can help in other ways. We can donate money to the go fund me page that Ross Abelow set up. We can also adopt one of the lonely homeless animals at the shelter. Every time a dog or cat leaves the shelter, another takes his place. There is a great need for more space at the shelters. Donations to the go fund me page will be given to the animal shelters in New York and the surrounding areas. These donations will purchase more food, more medicine, and more blankets for the animals. If enough donations come in there may be room for more animals. Ross Abelow is working with his community project trying to get the animals shelters where they can pay for more things that are needed.
