END CITIZENS UNITED ENDORSES MEL HALL FOR CONGRESS
Hall earns endorsement of 3 million member organization dedicated to campaign finance reform; pledges to reject corporate PAC money.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Second District Democratic Congressional Candidate Mel Hall announced today that he received the endorsement of End Citizens United (ECU), a national organization committed to reforming our campaign finance system. Hall has made campaign finance reform an important part of his campaign and made the decision to reject all corporate PAC donations.
“I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of End Citizens United, an organization that shares my same commitment to reforming our campaign finance system,” said Hall. “Our democracy is built on the idea that our elected officials should be held accountable by people in their district, not corporations and special interests. I look forward to working with End Citizens United to make that goal a reality.”
“Too many politicians in Washington are beholden to the Big Money special interests. They’re corrupting the system and leaving everyday families behind,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller. “Mel Hall is committed to fighting for meaningful reform so that Hoosiers, not special interests, are the priorities in Congress. We’re proud to endorse Mel’s campaign and look forward to helping him win in November.”
Unlike Jackie Walorski, Hall’s campaign is powered by hardworking people all across the 2 nd District. In the 2018 cycle so far, Walorski has accepted nearly $500,000 from corporate PACs and special interest groups.
End Citizens United’s support adds to Hall’s impressive list of endorsements, including the United Steelworkers, former Congresswoman Jill Long Thompson, and former Mayor of Goshen Allan Kauffman. Hall continues to campaign in all ten counties of the 2nd District, where voters are responding well to his commitment to protect Social Security and Medicare, expand access to quality and affordable health care, and grow good-paying Hoosier jobs.
