The potential for an upset in Pennsylvania is giving Trump nightmares. The possibility that the 18th district of Pennsylvania will end up losing its Republican incumbent is a sign that the Trump movement might have peaked and that we are now going to see its decline. Conor Lamb wants to be the guy that will take this victory and he is receiving the full support of End Citizens United in order to make it a reality. While there are those out there who say this is going to be little more than a fluke, the writing on the wall says otherwise.
The shocking upset in Pennsylvania is something nobody expected roughly 2 years ago. People believed that Trump would prove to be a spectacular failure and give the office to Hillary Clinton. However, things seem to be turning around rather quickly with special elections favoring the Democrats. As a state that played a pivotal role in the election of Trump it’s going to be interesting to see where things go in this upcoming special election. If Lamb can pull off a victory, it will be yet another sign that this year is the year Democrats manage to take back power.
End Citizens United has made a reputation for itself as one of the most prominent opponents of big money in politics for a reason. You simply can’t find too many out there who have made it clear they have the desire to do what ever they can to give people the final say so in the way that their country is run. Instead, you see corporate lobbyists trying to ensure they provide the majority of funding. This PAC is designed to help people take back their country from the interests that have sought take their voices out of the process.
Conor Lamb is going to be a test run for November. If he wins and he does so by a large margin it’s going to setback Trump’s success in working class America. He has already seen a loss in Alabama with the victory of Doug Jones, but this would be especially upsetting since Pennsylvania was so important to his image. He ran as a man trying to fight for blue collar Americans and he has seen many disappoints in that regard. Coal jobs are not coming back like they used to and issues affecting the people of the 18th district are still there. End Citizens United understands how this is going to change things and they want to be the ones to give Lamb what he needs to win. The road uphill is going to be a difficult one but it will certainly give the movement to bring politics back to the people much needed wins.
This is what you call small-dollar grassroots fundraising. Our members are pumped for Conor Lamb!
