End Citizens United, a political activist group that looks to help stop big money from influencing politicians, announced it will endorse Dan Feehan for a congressional seat in Minnesota. According to press releases, Feehan is looking to reform Washington through accountability and transparency, and he plans to support the “Disclose Act and Government by the People Act.
Feehan also plans to reject any corporate PAC money, which is one of the cornerstones of End Citizens United goals to help reform Washington. Feehan says he is proud, humbled and honored to receive the endorsement of End Citizens United. He also stated that the amount of influence that big money can buy over politicians comes at the expense of the citizens of the United States.
A poll by Gallup shows that 90 percent of Americans believe that government works for the best interest of big money while leaving many citizens behind. Feehan believes that the support of the American people must come from real government reform.

Some of the incumbents identified in the campaign include Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California and Rep. Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania.
