Conor Lamb Gets A Positive Push From End Citizens United PAC

Posted by WA6 on

     The race in a special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional seat is already getting ugly after Republican opponents of Democrat Conor Lamb seemed to suggest that Lamb was not a “real” military veteran.

Lamb served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2009 to 2013. He retired with the rank of captain and now serves as a major in the Marine Reserves. His military career was exceptional. He earned medals for service to global war on terrorism, the national defense service medal, and was recognized for a Navy and Marine Corps commendation. He was honorably discharged.

Lamb’s Republican opponent, state lawmaker Rick Saccone, served 18 years in the United States Air Force. His backers seemed to suggest that Saccone’s military record was somehow more legitimate than Lamb’s.

Lamb is in a tough race in this southwest Pennsylvania district that has been held by Republicans for decades. But Conor Lamb recently got a boost from a national political action committee, or PAC.

That PAC is End Citizens United, a group started in 2015. It was formed around a central goal of getting big money and “dark money” out of the American election system. Formation of the PAC is a reaction to the co-called 2010 Supreme Court Citizens United ruling which made it possible for corporations and billionaires to “go crazy” with millions and billions in donations to candidates of their choice.

Those candidates tend to be far right and alt-right Republicans willing to do the bidding of multinational corporations while ignoring the needs, concerns and issues of the average American citizen.

End Citizens United is backing Conor Lamb because he strongly supports reforming the way elections are handled in the U.S. He has specifically stated that it is essential that rules be changed regarding how much a single entity can donate to a specific political candidate.

End Citizens United is expected to raise some $35 million ahead of the 2018 midterm election. It is working hard to flip the U.S. House – and possibly the Senate – from Republican domination to Democrat control.

All the money End Citizens United raises is garnered with a strictly grassroots model. The average donation is about $14. End Citizens United is determined to be a force for the average voter who is increasingly being disenfranchised from elections by Big Money special interests.

Electing Conor Lamb in the March 13 special election would be a welcome “W” in End Citizens United’s column.
