50 States

I have decided to finally start a project I have been thinking of undergoing for some time. I want to start organizing supporters of Newt 2012. While we will start small and just have a few states, my hope is to eventually have state captains in every state. (Someone from every state has signed up on

I am not part of the official campaign. Neither is this blog or this project.

Here is the post I wrote that explains why this is so important.

While there will be some trial and error, the general outline of this project will be:

One person in charge of each state.

Each state will have a dedicated Google Group. (E.g., Newt 2012 -- Texas.) I think it would also be best to have a national list.

The ultimate goal is to be better prepared than the other campaigns in all the states -- not just Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, and Florida. Every campaign is going to be devoting nearly all their resources to those five states for the next seven months. It is not a slight on the states that follow those; it is simply political reality.

The GOP Primary figures to last long past those five states, however, and that is where we come in. If we can build a solid infrastructure in those five states as well as the later ones, that will give Newt and his campaign a huge leg up. They won't have to start from scratch when the campaign gets to that point; they will be able to expand on our efforts.

As the post I linked to earlier goes into more detail on, this is the way Obama beat Hillary. They were tied after the big states, but since his supporters were the only ones to seriously organize the later states, he won overwhelmingly.

We can do the same for Newt.

For anyone interested in helping with this project, here are the two best ways to contact me: you can e-mail me at or contact me on Twitter @joshgosser1776. If you are on Facebook, join the Newt for President page I help run.

Obviously, if you have friends or family who support Newt, ask them to join our effort.

For those who use FreedomWorks' FreedomConnector -- which is great -- you might be able to find Newt supporters on there. I would not recommend spamming people about Newt, but if you have some people who you regularly communicate with, see if they have a candidate they prefer. If they do not -- or they are not solidly behind the one they are currently supporting -- see what their vote-moving issue is and show them videos of Newt on the topic. (For example, if you come across someone who votes almost entirely based on the 2nd amendment, this video would be a good one.) There are a good number of videos on this blog that could come in handy. Newt's solutions are also something good to circulate.

Again, if you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me.

This can be a huge key to getting Gingrich the nomination and, ultimately, the Presidency, and I hope you will help out in it.
