At the core of End Citizens United’s message is the idea of justice and fairness in the political system, and at the core of Congressional Candidate Katie Porter’s life mission and platform is the same set of ideals. As a consumer advocate and professor, Katie Porter knows as well as anyone how destructive influx of money has been to our elections — and as progressive candidates around the country gear up to deliver the purported Blue Wave in 2018, it’s going to be candidates like Porter flipping Republican held seats that will make the difference.
Right now, California’s 45th Congressional District has a Republican representative, but it is also a district that turned out in huge numbers for Hillary Clinton (she won 49.8% of the vote to Trump’s 44%) and are huge supporters of Kamala Harris (who won the district with 66% of the vote). Well, Katie Porter not only has the endorsement of Senator Kamala Harris, but also the backing of End Citizens United who have led the way in delivering upsets for Democrats across the country. While Porter’s opponent has been a benefactor of dark money into her campaign coffers since she entered the political arena, Porter herself understands that politicians should be listening to the wills of the working class — NOT corporate PACs who try and buy elections.
In fact, it’s not just End Citizens United and Kamala Harris who are rushing to support Porter’s candidacy — Senator Elizabeth Warren sent her endorsement all the way across the country because she understands that Porter is steadfastly focused on protecting rights of everyday Americans. By all indications, this is promising to be a great year for Democrats and if candidates like Katie Porter continue to be nominated then chances are they will be giving Republicans fits and flipping seats all across the country.
Without a doubt, the support of End Citizens United (a group founded in March of 2015 to get money out of politics) will provide a massive boost to Porter’s campaign. As political observers around the country impatiently wait for the arrival of the Blue Wave, groups like End Citizens United and candidates like Katie Porter are hard at work doing the grassroots work necessary to flip both houses of Congress back under Democratic control. California as a whole is as blue as its ever been, and with an exciting candidate like Katie Porter in the 45th District it seems like it is really only a matter of months before that seat is flipped as well.
