Take Back team members testified in New Mexico, held meetings across from Manhattan, and spent several days in Nashville culminated Saturday afternoon with (from left); Kimberly Ishmael (KY), Leah Thompson (TN), John Pudner (AL), Heidi Behnke (GA), Brandon Neal (TN) and Mike Warren (TN).
The blistering pace will continue throughout the Southeast with a blitz of Florida that starts near Miami on Tuesday, then continues on to West Palm Beach and Tallahassee.
Western Director Doug Nickle testified on the need for reform in front of the New Mexico legislature, while Eastern Director Shaaya Ellis and Deputy Director Joe Livoti held meetings with Tri-State Regional Coordinator Paul Lichstein in Hoboken. After submitting HR1341 and S1660 to representatives of both Republican candidates for US Senate in Alabama’s upcoming special election, Pudner took the same information to Alabama Democratic Headquarters in Montgomery, where he was assured the nominee would see the information later in the day.
Going up Interstate 65, he then held a series of meetings in Birmingham and then Huntsville, before spending the last few days in Nashville where he met with Republican leaders from most states, donors, and groups with other organizations such as iCitizen and some southern volunteers with WolfPAC (pictured above) to find areas of common ground in the political reform effort. All this while more than 37,000 shared an article written by Pudner on Facebook that commented on historically low opinions of politicians (that have resulted from the dysfunctional campaign finance system), but is not linked here because Pudner also gave personal political opinions which are separate from Take Back Our Republic’s non-profit, non-partisan aims of reform.
