Since 2005, The Presidential Coalition has been dedicated to identifying and supporting conservative candidates running for office at the state and local levels of government. Many of today's up and coming grassroots conservatives will blossom into our national leaders of tomorrow. They represent the next generation, the conservative farm team, and it is critically important that they receive early support.
Our most glowing examples of success are the cases of Ohio's Josh Mandel and Virginia's Ken Cuccinelli. The Presidential Coalition supported these two extraordinary conservatives in their early runs for the state legislature. Mandel is now Ohio's Treasurer. Cuccinelli is Attorney General of Virginia and a candidate to succeed Bob McDonnell in the Governor's mansion.
Not everyone is focused on these state and local races, as most groups just want to focus on high profile federal elections, but we at The Presidential Coalition take great pride in our work to seek out the courageous conservatives putting their names on the ballot in the races that few are covering. These men and women are in the trenches running for the right reasons. They care deeply about their country, their children and grandchildren's future, and fighting for the core conservative principles we all hold dear.
Giving support to these candidates inspires them to forge on when the going gets tough. Our support lets them know someone out there is watching them and appreciates the hard work they are doing day in and day out for the conservative movement – even when it seems like no one is paying attention to all the handshaking and door knocking.
That's why The Presidential Coalition's work is unique. We're not like everybody else – only focused on the elections that the cable news is constantly reporting on – we're interested in finding the diamonds in the rough who get little media attention, but will be the conservative leaders of tomorrow.
We're calling for all conservative hands on deck in this process - we need your help in this important ongoing candidate cultivation effort! While our researchers are constantly on the lookout for the next great conservative leader, we can't do it alone. If there is a terrific conservative running for office in your area, we want you to contact us to let us know and we'll give the candidate you're championing every consideration for support! Please also visit our Direct Impact section to see which candidates we've been supporting!
Thank you for visiting The Presidential Coalition.
