Denver, CO, April 5, 2011– Raising Red PAC and Raising Red Action Fund launched Tuesday, April 5th at www.raisingred.com with the mission of raising money to support the Republican nominee and defeat President Obama in the 2012 presidential election.
Launched by the activist team of Charlie Smith, former College Republican National Committee President; Kellen Giuda, New York City Tea Party co-founder and former Tea Party Patriots Board of Directors member; and conservative Blogger John Hawkins, Raising Red PAC and Raising Red Action Fund were born from a need for an innovative and forward-thinking political operation focused on candidates that will solve the problems that have been passed on to the Millennial Generation by decades of irresponsible politicians.
Charlie Smith, founder of Raising Red and former College Republican National Committee President said, “Yesterday, President Obama launched his re-election campaign, we want him to know that the results of the 2010 election were no fluke. The American people are fed up with his big-government agenda, and we’re not going to just sit around and watch while he drives this country into insolvency.”
In a political environment dominated by social and online technology, vibrant citizen activism, and new changes in campaign finance law, Raising Red PAC is focused on empowering concerned Americans to support a Republican nominee that will defeat and replace President Obama in the 2012 election, one in which the president is expected to raise $1 billion for his re-election effort.
“Our generation, our entire country, cannot afford four more years of the Obama administration’s debt-ridden agenda,” said Kellen Giuda, NYC Tea Party co-founder. “After leading tea parties and tea party rallies across the country since 2009, it’s clear that the time has come to channel that energy and take our country back. Raising Red gives us the tool to do that.”
Hawkins’ Note: I’ve been involved in fund raising efforts on the Right side of the blogosphere since 2006. We’ve had some success, but they’ve never done as well as I’d hoped or had the staying power necessary to be successful over the long-term. That’s why I wanted to help create one of these organizations from scratch. I hope you’ll chip in some money, pass around the web page, and do your part to help get this web page going. If it becomes as successful as a I hope, it’ll be a fantastic tool to help get more conservatives elected.
