There is a special election going on in Pennsylvania. Conor Lamb is running for the place of Tim Murphy, the Republican incumbent. Conor Lamb is a Democrat. He is being endorsed by End Citizens United. Now, Pennsylvania is known as a Republican stronghold. Theoretically, it should not be that hard for Republicans to hold onto the seat. However, it is clear that Republicans are concerned about the outcome of this election. They do not know what is going to happen.
Rick Saccone is the one that Conor Lamb is going to be running against. President Donald Trump said that he endorses Conor Lamb. He said that in a tweet. Clearly, he is concerned about the election there himself.
Since President Trump was elected, the Republicans have suffered a number of defeats. Trump is hoping that there will not be another embarrassing defeat this time.
When Lamb spoke at a gathering, hundreds of people showed up. They trekked for miles in the snow just to meet him, hear him speak, and shake his hand. They are delighted to get some opposition in Pennsylvania.
It is true that Lamb has a battle ahead of him. However, it is also true that there has not been such a large crowd for a Democrat in Pennsylvania for a long time. In fact, it has been decades since such a crowd showed up.
So what is End Citizens United? What is this group that is endorsing Lamb, and what are their objectives? Why are they endorsing him, and what is this Citizens United that they want to end?
End Citizens United is a political action committee that focuses on reversing the Supreme Court decision that is known as Citizens United. It is a bad decision that allowed Super PACs to contribute a lot of money to politicians without the need to disclose that they donated or how much money they donated.
This is a disastrous decision. After all, it places politicians in the pockets of their massive donors. Corporations now have the ability to control politicians by donating a lot of money and then pressuring them to sign bills that would benefit them. The bad thing is that nobody will know about this because they are not required to disclose their decisions. That is what End Citizens United wants to change. They want to stop this corruption from taking place.
