The committee does this by contributing and looking for ways to make nobody to support these candidates and also aid in running of various independent expenditures.
After it was launched on March 1st, 2015, the End Citizens United took part in the 2016 election. That was its first cycle. ECU spent approximately 25 million to fund the candidates as well as taking care of other expenditures. This was not a bad beginning for End Citizens United as the cycle was run smoothly.

The organization spent around $4.4 million during this election. By mid-2017, End Citizens United had raised more than $7.5 million. This was a great achievement for the company and they hope to raise more than $35 for the election cycle in 2018. This is because they have gained more reliable donors who are willing to support their work.
