Recently, End Citizens United endorsed Doug Jones, the Democratic nominee, for U.S. Senate. The PAC made the announcement last Wednesday. Jones is running in a special election for the Alabama seat. He will be competing against Roy Moore of the Republican Party. The election will be held on December 12, 2017. Previously, Jones worked as a U.S. attorney.

During the announcement of End Citizens United’s endorsement, the organization said that their decision to support the campaigns of Doug Jones was motivated by its commitment of ensuring that American’s interests are always the first priority. The group accused Moore of being a racist and supporting bigoted agenda. The statement further posited that when elected, Moore would use his position to defend the rigged system in Washington. The politician has special interest that he wants to fight for in the Senate. He does not have the priorities of everyday Alabamians at heart.

Speaking during the release of the press statement, Tiffany Muller contended that Moore’s radical agenda has no place in the American Senate. The president of the End Citizens United further said that the politicians’ ideologies are not in line with Alabama and American values. Electing him to the senate would be a waste of time, as he would spend his time in Washington fighting for Big Money special interest and not that of the Americans.

Moore has a history of serving himself. Recently, he embarrassed the state by paying himself and his wife over $1 million in competition according to huffingtonpost.com. The money was sourced from a charity that he controls. Directing such huge amount of money to his pockets indicates that the politician is out to serve his personal interest and not those of the people.

Tiffany Muller praised Doug Jones saying that he is as a man of character and integrity. He pointed at his outstanding career as an attorney. Muller posited that the lawyer is a tough person who has never been afraid to fight for what is right. In the courts, Doug fought hard for Alabamians. Tiffany went on to say that it was time for the Alabamians to elect him to the Senate. His commitment to the good course will see him work even harder to unrig the system. His services will benefit Americans across the country.

Speaking during the press conference, Doug Jones pointed out that families in the state were tired of being sidelined in Washington. He asserted that he was committed to fighting for reforms that would empower voters through mending the broken system. Jones promised that he would work for the interest of Americans and not the Big Money special interests. He also noted that he would work closely with End Citizens United to help the organization to achieve its mission.
