MRPAC: Month in Review — January

February 2, 2010

month in review

As members of the Free and Strong America PAC family, we want to make sure you’re up to date with Mitt Romney and PAC news, schedules, links, pictures, and video, as well as ways you can help.
Scott Brown Wins Massachusetts Senate Race

Scott Brown Election

For the first time in decades, a Republican has been elected to a Senate seat in Massachusetts. Senator Scott Brown ran a grassroots campaign based on cutting wasteful spending, lowering taxes and getting tough on terrorists. The election sent shockwaves around the political world.

As supporters of the PAC, you deserve a thank you. Your support made it possible for Governor Romney to get behind Senator Brown from the very beginning, when polls showed him a 30-point underdog and everyone assumed the outcome was pre-ordained in favor of the Democrats.

Governor Romney asked his entire political team to help the then-unknown Brown, and he raised early money for him at a time when very few people would give him a second look.

At his January 19 victory speech at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, Senator Brown told the entire country: “I’m grateful to all those from across Massachusetts who came through for me even when I was a long shot. I especially thank a friend who was there with encouragement from the very beginning, and helped show us the way to victory — former Governor Mitt Romney.”

Exclusive Audio: Governor Romney Reads from “No Apology”

No Apology Audio We wanted you to be the first to hear this clip of Governor Romney reading a selection from his new book “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness” courtesy of the book’s publisher, St. Martin’s Press. Click here to listen to the clip.

The paper version of the book hits shelves on March 2nd, but you can pre-order a copy today. In the book, Governor Romney outlines his views on how to create a stronger economy, military, and families, and his vision on jobs, education, health care, energy, and citizenship.

Free and Strong America PAC Raises Nearly $3 million in 2009

Mitt and ScottAn off-election year doesn’t mean that the Free and Strong America PAC takes a break. With your help, we were able to raise nearly $3 million dollars this year to fight for the values that we all believe in.

Over $120,000.00 was given out to solid Republican candidates and conservative causes across the country.

The PAC’s contributions included $9,000 in early “seed money” to U.S. Senator-Elect Scott Brown, who went on to win a special election in Massachusetts to become the state’s first Republican Senator in decades. The PAC also gave $5,000 each to Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Republican Whip Eric Cantor (VA-07), Missouri Representative Roy Blunt who is running for U.S. Senate, Jim Tedisco who ran in a special election in New York’s 20th congressional district, and David Harmer who ran in a special election to represent California’s 10th congressional district.
