Country First is channeling our time, talent, and treasure to take on the most toxic partisans – elected leaders who tried to overturn our election, overthrow our republic, and who still today defend and minimize the deadly attack on our Capitol. We must work hard to ensure people like this do NOT represent us in the:
✔ U.S. Congress
✔ State Capitols
✔ Secretary of State Offices
✔ ANY other institution of vital importance to maintaining democracy in America, including state and local election officials
One thing most of these candidates have in common is that they’re in what we call "safe" seats – districts drawn so that there’s almost no chance the other party can defeat them in the general election, no matter how awful they are.
So how do you take on these toxic tribal chieftans in "safe" seats? You strike them in the primary. And we have a very strong, very compelling strategy to make things very difficult for them. These are people who are used to skating by, and can usually funnel their campaign cash to help elect other toxic partisans. Not this time. We will give our country the best chance it’s had to clean house – before we even get to November.
In these safe Republican districts, if we can disrupt the typical primary voter base by encouraging people who don’t normally participate in the Republican primary to show up, we have a chance to unrig the system. That means people who may not identify with where the Republican Party is heading today: Disaffected Republicans; Independents and unaffiliated voters; and even people from other parties. If we do this, the odds of defeating the most toxic leaders in our system goes up dramatically.
✔ Flood the Republican Primary Election with Non-Traditional Voters
✔ Recruit & Support Candidates who put Country over Party
There are three key tactics to executing this strategy, all of which will be executed using massive grassroots organization, mobilization, and execution; paid and unpaid traditional media; social media campaigns; and direct mail.
✔ Voter Education
✔ Voter Registration
✔ Voter Turn-Out
