American Majority Helps Change the Shape of State and Local Government
Following last night’s Spring Election, 20 American Majority Trained New Leaders were elected in the Spring Election. Congratulations to all of the winners on well run campaigns. American Majority trained new leaders had an excellent win ratio this year as 22 ran for office and 20 of them won their fall elections.
The Special Highlight was Dan Degner becoming the youngest City Council Member in the history of Fond du Lac Government. Dan, who is 22 years old, was a first time candidate running on a campaign of bringing a fresh perspective to local government. He was the second highest voter getter (3 were elected).
American Majority works to build a farm team of new leaders at all levels of government. Our trained New Leaders include 2 Judges, 6 School Board Members, and 12 Municipal Leaders. The farm team builds from the local and state levels of government. These leaders are also the folks who will hopefully take the next step to run for higher office down the road, creating a pipeline of conservative public service.
Nate Nelson, the Wisconsin Executive Director of American Majority, said “Congratulations to all the winners! Since opening our Wisconsin office in October 2010, we have trained 180 new leaders who’ve gone on to victory across Wisconsin. American Majority is helping to ensure that solid conservative candidates have the tools to be successful in their campaigns and we are thrilled to see these results in Wisconsin.”
