Today, GOPAC announced its Called-Up program will work to elect four proven and tested conservative state leaders to the U.S. House of Representatives:
• State Representative Marilinda Garcia in New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District
• State Representative Walt Rogers in Iowa’s First Congressional District
• State Delegate Barbara Comstock in Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District
• State Senator Jim Tracy in Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District
The “Called Up: A New Generation of Proven Leaders” program will assist GOPAC affiliated state legislators running for federal office in their Primary and General Elections.
“Every major league baseball team with an ounce of promise and long-term success has a well-oiled farm system operation. At GOPAC, we operate under the same principle,” said GOPAC Chairman Frank Donatelli. “We have diligently worked to foster the talents of conservative leaders and build a deep bench of proven and tested candidates. Marilinda, Walt, Barbara and Jim have proven themselves on the state level, and it is now time to call them up to higher office.”
“Through their active involvement in our programs, Marilinda, Walt, Barbara and Jim have shown tremendous abilities in advancing conservative ideas that improve the lives of their constituents. We know they have the knowledge, experience, and integrity to succeed in Washington, and we plan to provide them with the support necessary to get there. This support includes receiving the maximum allowable federal contribution. In addition, GOPAC members and followers will be encouraged to donate directly to the endorsed candidates,” remarked GOPAC President David Avella.
“The Republican Party’s success in 2014 is dependent upon advancing leaders with a proven record of getting results and touting their solutions for solving the challenges our country faces. The program will also bolster our endorsed candidates through independent expenditures that will exclusively tout their biographies and ideas for addressing the challenges facing America,” concluded Donatelli.
