By Brian LaSorsa, 10/11/12

Arizona-based grassroots activists protested Wednesday outside of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Richard Carmona’s get-out-the-vote rally.

Former President Bill Clinton campaigned on behalf of the candidate in Tempe and discussed the importance of Barack Obama’s healthcare law. Clinton also told the crowd of college students that the Romney-Ryan budget proposal will make tuition costs skyrocket.

“There are a lot of Richard Carmonas out there today,” Clinton said.

But he wasn’t paying attention to the crowd gathering outside of the gates.

Campaign Tip of the Week

By Henry Graebe, 10/10/12

Using social media is a great way to reach a mass audience in a cost effective way which, in essence, is what grassroots campaigning is all about.  An individual no longer needs to rely solely on a candidate to spread a message on their behalf.  Even those who are not able, or not willing, to sign blitz or phone bank are still able to participate in the process and make a difference before Election Day.

Campaign Tip of the Week

By Henry Graebe, 09/20/12

Walking maps are a vital part of door-to-door canvassing. A lot of time and energy can be wasted by knocking on doors in a heavily Democratic area. On the other hand, few things are able to provide the thrill that comes from talking to neighbors and convincing them to vote for your candidate. FreedomWorks for America aims to avoid the former and provide the latter with its walking map technology.

Sherrod Brown: The Most Liberal Member of Congress

By Kristina Ribali, 09/12/12

In a time of unprecedented spending, deficits and expanding federal government, ask yourself - do we need to reelect a senator who has the most liberal voting record in the country?  A senator who is a rubber stamp for the Obama Administration?   The great citizens of the Buckeye state have a choice, a clear choice.

Campaign Tip of the Week

By Henry Graebe, 09/07/12

One of the great tools offered by FreedomWorks for America is yard signs. These signs are a great way to boost a candidate’s name recognition and a single, well-placed sign can potentially reach thousands of voters.

With November 6 rapidly approaching, it is worth taking a few minutes to describe several do’s and do not’s when using yard signs. This will help to maximize efforts prior to the election.

By Henry Graebe, 08/16/12

Mack will now challenge incumbent Senator Bill Nelson in the crucial swing-state of Florida on November 6. FreedomWorks for America has proudly endorsed Connie Mack, a principled candidate who supports a constitutionally-limited government.
