Conor Lamb, a Democrat candidate in the running, representing one of the constituents of this year’s elections, was recently approached by Ted Skowvron while he was finishing an interview. Ted Skowvron is a 93-year old World War II veteran, who was pleased to meet Conor Lamb, shake his hand and more importantly discussing President Donald Trump. The veteran was especially eager to know when Conor Lamb would ensure that the current President is elected out of the Whitehouse. Instances like these, where hard-working citizens who have spent a lifetime dedicated to their country and paying taxes, try to get business people out of politics are when other people realize that big money does not belong in election campaigns. End Citizen United was founded as a Political Action Committee when the Supreme Court passed a ruling that corporations are people too and large sums can be used to fund election campaigns.
Just a few days before the election in this Congressional District, Republican Rick Saccone has made the headlines due to funding from various sources including that of corporate political committees. Democrat Lamb is in the hopes of using his rival’s claims of using corporate revenue, to leverage his situation. According to Tiffany Muller, the President of End Citizens United, Conor Lamb is open to accept funding from only non-corporate entities. This Democrat has decided to represent and stand up for various Pennsylvania families, that have continuously been suffering due to the rigged systems in the district. End Citizens United also declared their support of Conor Lamb with this announcement.
End Citizens United gets its entire funding through many supporters from diverse backgrounds, all of which have one thing in common, they are hard working citizens from the grass root level and are not corporations with unlimited spending power. According to Tiffany Muller, the various individual funders of this PAC are waiting eagerly to stand up against the companies with a vested interest especially those who are financially supporting and eventually rigging this election.
During this announcement, Democrat Conor Lamb took a few minutes to emphasize that he will not be accepting campaign fund contributions from PACs that are led or funded by corporations. He also stated that he would be graciously taking funds from End Citizens United as this committee is supported by regular people with one goal, for a truly democratic nation that is not fuelled by untraceable big money. He also added that one of the reasons the system isn’t functioning as it should is because of the methods used to finance political campaigns.
While his rival, Republican Rick Saccone has been gaining popularity due to corporate entities investing significant efforts in his campaign, through the means of ads amongst other things, Democrat Conor Lamb and End Citizens United believe that their grass root contributors are highly energetic this year and this race might be different compared to previous elections.
