End Citizens United, an organization committed to bringing campaign finance reform and transparency has endorsed Democrat Molly Kelly for Governor of New Hampshire. End Citizens United has had a strong influence in holding candidates accountable for choosing to accept corporate or PAC funding. The issue dates back to 2010 when the Supreme Court case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruled in favor of ending spending limits that corporations can issue. The ruling would create a trickle-down of loopholes such as the ability to keep the identity of corporations that donate to certain candidates private. Find out more about End Citizens United at

Molly Kelly is a unique case due to the fact that End Citizens United has normally set their focus only on federal officials. Today, they have created a separate branch called “fight for Reform” that assists and endorses state-level officials. It is understandable today why such a move was made, the states have their rights and fighting for reform on a state level can contribute small wins that will eventually bring back a democracy where candidates serve their district constituents and not their district corporations.

Molly Kelly caught the attention of End Citizens United after pledging to end the “LLC Loophole” which provides business owners the ability to donate multiple times through their various businesses. In paraphrasing a quote from Kelly, “there is enough of that in Washington with Trump, let’s lead by example here in New Hampshire”. She is also seeking to clarify state laws to close these loopholes. Today Molly Kelly is one of only 4 governors to be endorsed by Fight for Reform.

End Citizens United has taken a new and bold step in leading the country to finance reform. This state-level project is new and has its flaws, but the progress and its errors today will bring victory in the future.

Premiere Gazette’s article also suggests that gaining a major endorsement from the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund can only serve as a boon to Beto’s run. Climate deniers mostly lean to the right. So, Democratic candidate Beto O’ Rourke’s significant environmental triumph may help him garner even more support from left-leaning individuals who are interested in sustainable development or are environmentally conscious. This valued quality of being down to earth has also aided in O’Rourke’s favorable outcomes in relation to current grassroots movements. Not only is O’Rourke pro-immigration, but he also desires state-provided healthcare for all Texans and emphasizes the profound creation of jobs that will ensue if he wins. This compassionate man seeks to close the aperture between the left and right, suggesting that the United States’ current political system pits people against one another when real change must involve coexistence and co-work. His integrity and determination have additionally led to his acquiring of significant support by the truth-seeking group End Citizens United. Valuing justice, this grassroots group resists the nefarious ways of politicians like Ted Cruz, who accept unethical donations from Political Action Committees.

Many people might not be familiar with the name of Betsy Devos but she is the Secretary of Education under the Trump Administration. Devos has been in the world of politics for many years and is especially fond of the position that she holds. However, President Trump’s current reversal of the Obama’s Administration, transgender bathroom guidelines, has angered this renown politician.

In February of 2017, the Trump Administration did away with President Obama’s previously permissive regulations pertaining to transgender individuals. These rules endorsed the rights of transgenders to use bathrooms that are suited for their preferred gender status.

The Obama Administration stated that it would be a Civil Rights violation to stop this group of people from using public facilities that were for their designated orientation. Trump’s Administration does not disagree with President Obama’s former stance on the issue.

However, they do say that these laws limit the role of the states and local school districts. In other words, these are the governing bodies that should be the groups which will ultimately decide how this situation plays out in real life.

There are widespread efforts to try to remove President Maduro from office, but they have all been thwarted so far.
As the article suggests,expert David Osio explains that the quickest way for President Maduro to regain popularity and be able to govern through the rest of his turn without a coup, is to put in place various economic controls to stabilize the country immediately. One of the most important measures President Maduro should take is to institute a floating exchange rate, as did former President Hugo Chavez went the country was experiencing similar chaos a few years ago. In addition, another economic strategy would be for the government to sell some of its oil reserves, which would not have to be pumped out of the country until years from now.
