End Citizens United is praising Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand for rejecting corporate PAC money, and staying committed to their decision to stop accepting donations moving forward.
ECU is encouraging candidates to not except special interests money, and is giving millions of families across the United States a voice and education on why refusing this funding is so important to your character. For both Cory Booker and Kirsten to make this decision, they have demonstrated leadership when it comes to fighting how the system works and bringing a new point of view, taking into account the people and not the corporate special interest carrying out an agenda.
End Citizens United are grateful for Booker breaking the system and for bringing awareness, utilizing our rights of democracy. He has had such a huge impact on refusing corporate PAC money that it actually turned into a trend across America for candidates looking for votes being their authentic self, not driven by money with the wrong intentions. Both Kirsten Gillibrand, and Cory Booker are setting a new standard for candidates in 2020 on the issue of campaigns being financed, for example, Gillibrand stop accepting corporate PAC on the first day of the new year. At this point Kirsten and Booker wanted to display their leadership, and take on that role no matter how it is perceived according to politifact.com.
It’s only a matter of time when the obvious issue of money in politics just can’t be accepted and swept under the rug to the voters looking for a candidate that should be focusing on real issues in the community, and End Citizens United makes that clear starting out 2018 on a good note with these two individuals already setting an example. Taking a such a daring stand as this, it has only caused a ripple effect in other candidates as well, leading to nearly 70 candidates declining to take corporate PAC money.
When you make this kind of positive adjustment, you are giving a voice back to the voters who matters most, no longer making them feel left out and not part of the decision making when it comes to how serious picking a leader is to their daily life. The outline of American elections has shifted dramatically today with the help of Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand highly reducing the act of untraceable money creating the outcome of a certain desired candidate.
