For the second time since the formation of Take Back Our Republic (Take Back), Executive Director John Pudner is mentioned in an article on Drudge Report, and this time it is courtesy of him appearing in the cover story of Time Magazine. The account of the past work with Steve Bannon occurred before John Pudner gave up Republican consulting to work full-time in search of conservative solutions by starting Take Back and Bannon gave up Breitbart to lead the “Drain the Swamp” effort for President Trump, but the there is a connection…
The connection that drew interest from Time Magazine was Pudner’s first project with Bannon – an attempt to stop their high school from moving from the diverse central city in Richmond to the rich, exclusive suburbs. While Benedictine High School did move, the elected officials who approved the move lost their re-elections after the massive grassroots operation to try to stop the draw of big money.
Some in the grassroots army that opposed the move to those suburbs in turn were part of the army of volunteers who worked to defeat the big money campaign of Majority Leader Eric Cantor. The blueprint for those races is being developed into an open-source “People Powered Playbook” that can be accessed and used by anyone to run a campaign to level the playing field against those using big money to overcome a community group or underfunded candidate, no matter the party.
Sign up today at www.takeback.org to make sure you are one of the first to see the Playbook when it is released later this year.
