#NCSEN: FreedomWorks + Greg Brannon = Game changer

download (15)Tea Party groups across the state and the Brannon for US Senate campaign are quietly lining up supporters to attend a “FreedomWorks BBQ” in Raleigh on Tuesday evening. Sources familiar with the event’s back story say that this event can be inferred as a coming-together of the Brannon campaign and the national, high-profile Tea Party-affiliated political organization. download (9)

FreedomWorks formed as the Tea Party was just picking up steam in 2009.  It has been a clearinghouse for limited government ideas, and has led the way in educating the public on those limited government principles favored by The Tea Party.   FreedomWorks has also aligned itself with anti-establishment  candidates with limited government platforms  at the state and federal levels.

An alliance with FreedomWorks enhances Brannon’s street cred with the Tea Party, adds more grassroots organizing tools to his arsenal, and will likely aid his advertising and fundraising operations.  Polling and fundraising reports indicate that Brannon and GOP establishment favorite Thom Tillis are the frontrunners in the GOP primary field.  Tillis has already received overt political and financial support from national GOP establishment figures like Karl Rove, Mitch McConell, and John Boehner.

  1. Just some clarification and edification: FreedomWorks was founded in 1984 as Citizens for a Sound Economy with Ron Paul being appointed the first chairman.

    In 2004 was split into two groups: FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity.

    In 2006 Steve Jobs actually joined the board of directors.

  2. Receiving financial support from Rove, McConnell, and Boehner tells you that Tillis is already engaged in the corrupt DC politics. I stand with Brannon. I have his bumper sticker on my cars but don’t see others out there.

    1. Tilli$ is nothing but a rent boy for the special interests. He NEVER turns up at a candidate forum with regular GOP voters, but seems to always turn up to $pecial interest functions with checks to be written. There is no doubt about who it is that he intends to represent if he gets to the Senate, and who he will ignore. If a politician ignores regular voters at election time, why would anyone with a brain think he would listen to them later? Tilli$ is like his mentor Richard Morgan and plays only to the special interests, not the GOP voters.

      It is hard to get anyone to put on bumper stickers any more. I see a handful in my county for Brannon and none for any other GOP candidate.

      As to McConnell, the recently released Rasmussen poll shows McConnell tied with Democrat Allison Grimes, but it shows conservative stalwart Matt Bevin, who is challenging McConnell in the GOP primary, leading Allison Grimes by six points. It is clear which Republican in the primary is more electable, and it is NOT Mitch McConnell.

    2. This quote from President Reagan warns us about candidates like Tilli$:

      “We don’t intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all.” — President Ronald Reagan

  3. Brannon stickers are on all of my vehicles. I’ll display a yard sign too, even if I have to make it myself.

  4. jp if he don’t raise any more money than he’s raising and keep spending money like a drunken Chinese businessmann Las Vegas, you may have to make your own sign, ala Steve Royal…

  5. I’ve known Greg Brannon and his family, since he was a teenager, and he is as honest as the day is long. He is not a politician, and does not want to go to Washington to create some new government program, but to give back to the people, the individual freedoms which God and the founding fathers, gave us at the creation of our country.
    There would be no other member of congress who would know the Constitution, and our country’s history, as well as Greg.
    I don’t live in North Carolina, but I would urge all voters in that great state to put this man in office.
    I wish we had one like him running in every state in the union !
