A report published in the USA TODAY indicates that the amount was raised just three months ago. The group is planning to attain 35 million dollars. The amount should be collected before the midterm elections that are expected to happen in the country in the year 2018. End Citizen United is believed to have started its special operations in 2016 during the presidential elections. The leaders of the institution say that during the last campaign, it had more than 25 million for its many operations.


Tiffany Muller currently serves as the chief executive and also the president of the PAC. In an interview, Muller says that a group of 100 people decided to make their contributions in End Citizen United early 2017.
