2012: Restoring the Republic
Promoting a slate of candidates with a strong liberty agenda and solid prospects of victory
The 2010 elections were a vital turning point in our country and RLC members were pleased to play a key role in supporting candidates with the values of limited, responsible government and individual liberty. View our 2010 candidate endorsements and learn more about our candidates who won election in November of 2010. As we head toward 2012, the RLC will continue to endorse candidates who can return the country to our founding principles. You can view a list of our 2011 endorsements.
Candidates can now fill out the online version of the FEDERAL CANDIDATE SURVEY
The Liberty Compact should still be signed and mailed in separately.
All candidates seeking the endorsement of the Republican Liberty Caucus are strongly encouraged to sign the Liberty Compact and fill out the Candidate Questionnaire (.doc). Completed documents can be sent via e-mail to the National Chairman or can be sent via regular mail to: David Nalle, 7609 Nez Perce Tr., Manor TX 78653. For information or if you have questions call 512-656-8011.
If you wish to submit a candidate’s name for consideration, please include the following information about the candidate:
• Candidate’s name, contact information, brief biography, and web site;
• The candidate’s party affiliation;
• Nature of the race, e.g., office sought, opposition, voter demographics, likelihood of victory, campaign funding, etc;
• The personal characteristics and viability of the candidate;
• The candidate’s position on many of the various key barometer issues, e.g, taxes, spending, eminent domain abuse, war on drugs, asset forfeiture, free trade, Real ID, etc.; and
• A case for endorsement (optional)
All of the above information can be sent to the RLC’s National Chairman for consideration by the Board of Directors.
Federal candidates in states with chartered affiliates are considered by the state chapter Board of Directors as well as the National Board of Directors. Federal candidates in states without a chartered chapter are reviewed by our Endorsements Committee with final approval by the National Board.
Candidates for state office in a chartered chapter are ONLY considered by their state affiliate.
Value of RLC Endorsement
A RLC endorsement can be tremendously valuable to a candidate, especially in primary races. The RLC can provide endorsed candidates with a signed statement explaining why the candidate should be elected. This statement can be distributed as a flyer or displayed prominently at the candidate’s website.
In a primary in particular, the endorsement can ensure Republicans that the most worthy Republican candidate is the candidate who has embraced traditional Republican principles — the candidate endorsed by the RLC.
For the many voters who share our values — and we believe that most Republicans hold liberty and small government close to their hearts — the RLC is a brand name which stands for the core values of the GOP and having the endorsement of the RLC immediately lets voters know that a candidate is one of the best which our party has to offer.
