El Paso sits over in the extreme western corner of the state of Texas. Go a mile to the south and you’re in Mexico. Head a mile to the north and you’re in New Mexico. The city is barely inside the Lone Star State and it’s where Beto O’Rourke grew up. Read more about the group on Wikipedia.
Beto O’Rourke is a tall, skinny, good-looking and articulate white man with a Latino name. However, the nickname is common in the area for the Congressman’s real first name of Robert.
O’Rourke saw some success as a guitarist for a local punk rock band. Now he’s the proud Congressman from El Paso and he is taking on GOP incumbent Senator Ted Cruz for his Senate seat in the 2018 midterms.
A recent poll has O’Rourke just a point or two behind the longtime senator in a race nobody thought was winnable. Much of O’Rourke’s success comes from his undeniable authenticity and charisma as well as a little help from End Citizens United.
End Citizens United is one of the most important political action committees in the country. They have an extensive grassroots organization that is capable of raising funds for the right candidates. And Beto O’Rourke is the right candidate.
O’Rourke does not take any money from giant corporations. He funds his campaign exclusively through individual donations. This is the kind of campaign finance that End Citizens United fully endorses. The group absolutely despises what Ted Cruz does to raise money.
Ted Cruz blatantly takes advantage of Citizens United. The Supreme Court decision allows international corporations with offices in the United States to spend any sum of money to help certain candidates win. Ted Cruz has a long history of helping giant corporations dominate the common man, so they use mountains of money to influence elections in Texas.
End Citizens United wants to put a stop to the type of fundraising that helps Ted Cruz win. The group believes that Citizens United must be abolished. Beto O’Rourke has vowed to help the group obliterate the decision in Washington when elected. And he’s making a charge to take the long-held seat away from Ted Cruz.
