Tiffany’s Wisconsin win a testament to grassroots activism

State Senator Tom Tiffany’s victory in the February 18 primary in the Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District represented “another win for the grassroots by demonstrating how our model of citizen to citizen contact truly makes the difference,” according to Americans for Prosperity Action Senior Advisor Eric Bott.

Tiffany’s 15-point victory margin was a testament to Americans for Prosperity Action’s focus on informing voters that if elected, Tiffany would drive policies that promote economic growth and make life more affordable for Wisconsin families. AFP Action was  particularly active in promoting his position in favor of repealing antiquated Davis-Bacon labor mandates that kill jobs and drive up the cost of construction projects in the Badger State and across the country.

The contrasts with his opponents’ policy preferences were communicated to voters through 300,000 contacts by activists braving winter weather, and 68 events held by AFP Action. The group also engaged in direct mail, digital and radio campaigns to spread the word.
