End Citizens United officially announced on Wednesday, that they have plans in the coming election for U.S Senate, to endorse the Democratic candidate, Doug Jones. Current Democratic Nominee Jones, is running for senate, based off of his credentials as a previous United States attorney, and is running against rival republican candidate, Roy Moore. He’s currently nominated for the Alabama special election, which is set to take place this December on the 12th of the month. In defense of their endorsement, ECU made statements regarding Candidate Moore that weren’t of the most pleasant nature, claiming that he was “An extremist with a racist, bigoted agenda, who will defend a corrupt, rigged system in Washington that favors the priorities of special interests over everyday Alabamians,”.
President of ECU also made statements concerning Moore, accusing him of having a “radical agenda” which was not fit for any member of the United States Senate to posses. Tiffany Muller is currently active president of End Citizens United and stands firm aside her beliefs that Moore is an unfit and inappropriate choice for office. She later went on to question Moore’s set of values, while continuing to give hard reasoning on why Doug Jones was a far more suitable candidate. “Doug Jones is a man of character and integrity” Mrs. Muller went on to say; as she gave various reasonings for ECU’s endorsement decision.
