Had a great time talking to voters over the weekend! After we talked to this nice lady, she said she is going to vote for Chris McDaniel!

At another house, a kind gentleman took our literature and tore apart the information on Cochran left at his house earlier in the day. He also took a yard sign for his house, came to our get out the vote meeting later, and picked up 500 door hangers to distribute!

Nice to know that our work really makes a difference!

MS Activist Story

By ISomberg, 05/31/14

Volunteer Steve Wade and I were inside a McDonalds in Hernando, Mississippi. The gentleman came up to us and asked if one of us drove the car with all the signs. He wanted some for his yard and also took some to put out in public spaces. Always great to run into fellow conservatives that understand the importance of our grassroots efforts!

Thom Tillis and the Case of the Poorly-Chosen Friends

“Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.” ~ George Washington

In politics, as in much of life, you can tell a great deal about a person by their choice of companions. This is especially true because in politics your friends often choose you as much as the other way around.

Our Post-Election Report

By Matt Kibbe, 12/17/12

Thanks to the generosity of investors like you, FreedomWorks for America left an indelible mark on the 2012 elections and built a permanent asset for the freedom community.

What's Next?

By Matt Kibbe, 11/11/12

“I’ve always said that a potential Achilles heel for the Tea Party movement is the presidential election, because the power of the Tea Party movement comes from its leaderlessness, and if one guy screws up, we just kick them out and move on, because you’re not really dependent on one leader to always get it right. When it comes to selecting a nominee for president to run against Obama, you ultimately are stuck with one guy, right? Or one lady. So I don’t know how that works itself out.”

Win or Lose, Work Begins Again Tomorrow

By Kemberlee Kaye, 11/06/12

Today is the day so many hard working activists have been waiting for. From a contentious presidential primary to many hard-fought primary victories and near victories, it all comes down to today. 

I've seen varying opinions on the outcome of the presidential race, some incredibly optimistic, others not so much. But regardless of the polling data and the punditry, one thing is certain; America is experiencing an awakening.

Foul Play in Latest Indiana Senate Poll? Certainly Looks That Way

By Kemberlee Kaye, 11/05/12

This election season has brought a new focus on the validity and accuracy of polling data. Given a dramatic skew in one direction (up to eleven points in some cases), some claim polls are being used to construct a narrative in order to influence an outcome rather than functioning as passive predictors. It appears as though a similar situation has plagued the Indiana Senate race.
