We are in an incredible, busy period as we gear up for a major campaign across the country this summer.
You can see in the photo below, Ivanka Trump and me in the White House East Room for an update on the President’s Prison Reform initiative. I wrote about this important initiative in my nationally syndicated column this week.
And you can see me in the home of Vice President Mike Pence and his beautiful wife Karen, for dinner last week. Also, I was in just in Jerusalem for the opening of the U.S. Embassy and met with Ambassador David Friedman and his beautiful wife Tammy. I am tired but excited! That’s because these policies that I support change lives. And I’m about to take it further by educating Americans about these policies and more in stressed cities in 10 battleground states. You know, like I do, how important this work is at this most critical time for our country.
I’m calling this our Frontline Defense Campaign where we will educate Americans in 10 battleground states. It’s in these states where the debate about what government means is the most important.
Past results from our education efforts in distressed zip codes have resulted in additional forums and town halls, more passionate voter registration, and more aggressive participation at the ballot box with a conservative perspective. We look forward to seeing similar results in a critical election year.
Voter education that prompts individual voter engagement as a citizen is extremely important. According to a recent report by the Center for Advancing Opportunity, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the Charles Koch Foundation and Koch Industries, in collaboration with Gallup: 51 percent of fragile-community residents identify as Democrats or lean toward the Democratic Party, while 24 percent are Republicans or lean Republican. And 15 percent are political independents.
We can change hearts and minds with our seminars that teach about my story and others like me who woke up from the progressive nightmare.
