End Citizens United, a Democratic PAC that pushes to change the way campaigns are financed, announced a round of 10 Congressional endorsements including Christina Hartman and state Senator Daylin Leach. Hartman is running in the 16th Congressional district, and Leach is running in the 7th Congressional district.
“Each of these candidates has vowed to curb the corrupting influence that money has over our politics and fight to enact meaningful reform that will upend this system. We’re thrilled to support their campaigns and work with our grassroots members to help elect them,” End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller said in the announcement.
The endorsement for both candidates will likely help in the primary as they look to solidify their base ahead of contested primaries.
In the 7th district, Paul Perry, one of Leach’s primary opponents announced he was exiting the race in part because of the fundraising demands of a Congressional campaign.
