I’ve got some very big news to share with you that up until now has been a secret.
Today, Ken Vogel, a reporter for Politico.com broke a fairly big scoop. He managed to obtain a copy of what had been a very secret strategic planning memo I had written in my capacity as Coordinator of the Tea Party Express exactly one year ago.
And so now since the word is out, we wanted to share this strategy memo with you, our supporters. We are very excited to finally be able to share with you the behind-the-scenes strategic thinking that was behind the incredible success of the Tea Party Express.
You see the Tea Party Express wasn’t an accident. It was a carefully considered and well-planned project that was designed to enage local tea party groups all across the country to join together to make a difference and help take our country back – while still allowing those local groups to retain their independence and autonomy. And it’s been a phenomenal success that has infuriated the Left and many within the media as well.
Keep reading for more details below, but if you simply can’t wait, you can read what had been the secret memo for yourself – HERE.
As you’ll note when you read the memo, the plan was to find a way to engage in political action to defeat the worst of the tax-spend-bailout Democrats and RINO Republicans in Congress.
And for the past year, YOU – our supporters, have helped us to implement this plan. We have achieved a success far beyond our wildest dreams, and I know from reading your emails and talking to you at the 100+ tea party rallies we’ve held across this nation how excited you are about all that we have achieved.
We spent over $350,000 to help elect Scott Brown – and employed a national TV advertising campaign when the local advertising inventory sold out, so we could reach voters in the state via a medium that the Democrats had failed to think of using.
We helped to force the retirement of sellout Congressman Bart Stupak, after launching a $250,000 “Defeat Bart Stupak” TV and radio advertising blitz and series of 5 Tea Party Express rallies throughout his rural Michigan district.
We stood up for Doug Hoffman (the Conservative Party candidate) over the RINO Republican, Dede Scozzafava in Upstate New York. We almost beat the establishment of BOTH the Democrat and Republican parties. You see, we here at the Tea Party Express stand for conservatism, and sadly the Republican Party at times needs to be reminded to adhere to its conservative principles.
And, perhaps most notably, we’ve spent over $500,000 to “Defeat Harry Reid” – more than any other group – and watched as Reid’s poll numbers have plunged along the way. You saw the impact we had at the start of this tour when we brought out 20,000 people to the middle of the desert for the “Showdown in Searchlight.”
We don’t just TALK about doing things, with your help we’ve taken real ACTION. And we did so without being a part of the political establishment.
So, please, take a few moments and read this memo, now that it’s out in the public domain. We’ve already been putting together new strategies reflective of the current political environment we face, and you are going to be very excited about what we have in store from this point until November 2010 congressional elections!
