Madison Project Announces the Launch of Code Red USA in Battleground States for the November Election

Washington, DC, August 23, 2012The Madison Project, a political action committee chaired by former Congressman Jim Ryun (KS), has launched a grassroots GOTV plan called Code Red USA. The launch was announced today by Madison Project President Drew Ryun and Code Red USA Co-Founders Matt Armstrong of Political Gravity and Fred Solomon of the Wetumpka TEA Party.

Code Red USA is a ground game plan that will focus on specific objectives in key battleground states. The plan has four main components:

The Adopt a State component allows tea party groups in blue states or safely red states to “adopt” a tea party group or to campaign in a critical state. The RV Patriots component will consist of RVs and mobile homes equipped with laptops and sophisticated GOTV technology called Gravity™, turning them into self-contained Mobile Command Centers, which enable volunteers to make phone calls and canvass important neighborhoods within targeted counties in each battleground state.

“When you combine these first two elements of Code Red with the Voter Integrity component, it’s an unbeatable combination,” said Ryun. “We feel strongly that while there will be a lot of money spent on TV ads this fall, the smart money will go towards a robust ground game. Code Red USA is a unique plan to make a real difference where elections are actually won or lost, on the ground.”

The final component is Cross Community Engagement, where activists will make a concerted effort to engage with minorities for voter education, registration and mobilization.

Code Red USA will launch the Florida Adopt a State and RV Patriots programs on Tuesday, September 4th in Oldsmar, Florida, at the Headquarters of Operation Hire Our Heroes, which is a group dedicated to helping our Nation’s veterans find jobs after they return from military service. Other battleground states will launch in the weeks after the Florida launch leading up to November 6, 2012.

“This plan is a 100% grassroots operation, funded by donations from activists all across the country,” said Armstrong. “Because we want to win this election, conservative grassroots groups and their members must be empowered to make a real difference in the states where the election will be decided.”

With many seats for the US House and Senate, plus the Presidency, expected to be decided by razor thin margins, “The plan is to go where the voters are and engage them one on one, which can literally sway the outcome of the various races,” said Ryun.
