The Big Money 20 is a list of politicians controlled by special interest money from drug companies, oil companies, Wall Street, and other corporate donors. End Citizens United created this list to focus their donation efforts for the 2018 midterms to challengers of these candidates to remove them from office. To combat the Big Money 20 End Citizens United has endorsed candidates to come up against them in the midterm elections. The recent candidate they have endorsed for a Senate seat is Gary Trauner for Wyoming. They have also recently endorsed Beto O’Rourke, Krysten Sinema, and Jacky Rosen for the 2018 midterm elections. A full list of candidates they have endorsed for the 2018 midterm elections is available on their website.
Their goal to remove the Big Money 20 list from political office is a straightforward one. But it is not an easy undertaking. The more candidates they help elect to public office though, the more likelihood that the organization and their mission will get more attention from the public. Many of the public would like to remove bought off candidates from the government. Their goal may seem difficult, but it is a mission that rings true for many across the nation. The 2018 midterms is hopeful for the organization to get progress with their mission.
