The left-leaning PAC, End Citizens United recently made a major splash in the media and across Washington by claiming former Florida Governor Rick Scott was attempting to sidestep campaign finance regulations by using the New Republican PAC to back his campaign for the Senate at the 2018 Midterms. ECU President Tiffany Muller has been a constant campaigner and watchdog for fairer election finance regulations following the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision; among the issues identified by Muller and End Citizens United is the problem of corporate groups given the same campaign financing rights as humans.
Former GOP Governor Rick Scott established the New Republican Super PAC in an attempt to further the work of President Donald Trump among young people but has recently faced a backlash after the goals of the groups were altered to suit his own campaign plans.

Paul Bozzi, an End Citizens United official stated he believed Scott was simply looking to bypass financing rules and not fully disclose the depth of the funding he was receiving from special interest groups, mega-donors, and grassroots Republicans. One of the main sticking points for the traditional PAC which limits donations from members to just $5,000 is the fact Scott is still listed as the Chair of the New Republican PAC in a clear flouting of the election financing regulations.
End Citizens United was established in 2015 with a clear aim of bringing to an end the rules changed following the 2010 Citizens United decision which allows almost unlimited financing to be given to candidates during election cycles. Alongside the decision to target the campaign of Rick Scott, ECU is also looking to target a list of donors christened the “Big Money 20” who work closely with special interest groups. The list of Republicans accepting funding from special interest groups was recently updated to add Pennsylvanian Representative Keith Rothfus to its ranks with ECU President Tiffany Muller stating Rothfus was known for placing the needs of special interest groups above those of his constituents.
