·       LD25 Senate candidate Ralph Heap: The voters in LD25 have made it clear what they want from their next State Senator.  They want a conservative who is committed to limited government and economic prosperity.  Not a politician who has consistently supported bigger government.  I made the decision to run for State Senate because I looked at what was going on down at the State Legislature and believed we can do better.  In fact, we have to do better. My top priorities as your next State Senator are simple.  I'm going to fight for policies that encourage economic growth and prosperity.  I'm going to fight to limit the size, cost, and reach of government because I believe that when government get's too big and costly, our economy suffers.  I'm not a political insider who is cozy with lobbyists and special interests.  I'm a surgeon who believes that your next State Senator should be someone who is committed to fighting for you and your values, not the lobbyists and special interests.   website.  Volunteers sign up here.

In just a decade, Olsen transformed the Goldwater Institute from a small government watchdog to the nation’s most effective organization at expanding freedom.

·        Today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) is announcing the formal launch of Victory 365, a new permanent grassroots field operation that will run 365 days a year. Victory 365 is a partnership between local, state and national Republicans to mobilize volunteers nationwide to engage with voters in their communities. The program will focus on sustained relationships through a precinct-based grassroots organizing structure to build long-term relationships.

Victory 365 will be supported by the RNC’s field staff and thousands of precinct captains and volunteers. In the last year, the RNC has hired 193 field staff,  who have recruited over 14,000 precinct leaders nationwide to lead the Victory 365 effort. Minority engagement staff are also working with field staff to engage with voters in Hispanic, African American and Asian communities.
     “Today we are launching a national field program that is unlike anything the RNC has done in past election cycles,” said Chairman Priebus. “In earlier years, Republicans were known for a 72-hour program and a victory operation that lasted for a couple months. Victory 365 means that the RNC will engage with voters year-round, non-stop, 365 days a year.”  See more about GOP Victory 365: w
