American Majority Helps Change the Shape of Local Government  

Mequon, WI – Following last night’s Spring Election, 32 American Majority Trained New Leaders were elected. Congratulations to all of the winners on well-run campaigns. American Majority trained New Leaders had an excellent win ratio this year as 44 ran for office and 32 of them won their Spring elections. AM trained candidates had a 73% win percentage.

Special highlights of the evening were Mayor Mel Nieuwenhuis of Delavan, who was recently trained by American Majority and the St. Croix County board where 5 trained candidates won their races.  

American Majority works to build a farm team of new leaders at all levels of government. Our trained New Leaders include 24 State Legislators, 54 County Board Supervisors, 41 Municipal Level Leaders, 35 School Board Members, 2 District Attorneys, 3 County-wide officials (Clerk, Treasurer, & Clerk of Courts), and 10 Judges. 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 169 new leaders who’ve gone on to victory across Wisconsin. American Majority is helping to bring conservative reform to the state of Wisconsin by providing candidates the tools to be successful in their campaigns. We’re very proud of the results thus far, and we will continue to build on these successes in the future.”
