Hamilton, NJ, October 21, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The only grassroots political movement that appeals to mainstream voters of all political stripes, the Modern Whig movement, has taken another step in its national efforts to compete with the other two parties with the reconstitution of the Whig National Committee. The first public act of the WNC is to announce that two more viable, common sense advocates have filed to run for Congress under the revived Whig Party banner.
The new Whig National Committee is based in Washington, DC and designed to serve as an umbrella for the overall Modern Whig Party.
The latest federal Whig candidates to announce their official candidacy for 2010, in conjunction with the Florida Whig Party, include John Annarumma of Gainesville, FL and Clayton Schock of Broward County, FL. Paul McKain's Congressional campaign already is making waves in his district. In New Jersey, we have a State Assembly Candidate in 2009, Gene Baldassari (NJ-14).
About the Whig Party:
Established in 1833, the Whigs are one of America's oldest mainstream political parties. They were the original party of Abraham Lincoln and four other U.S. Presidents.
Revived by Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, the grassroots movement has quickly attracted tens of thousands of members. They represent moderate voters from all walks of life that cherry-pick between traditional Democratic and Republican ideals in what has been called the Modern Whig Philosophy. This Washington, DC-based national movement values common sense, rational solutions ahead of ideology and partisan bickering.
This includes general principles of fiscal responsibility, strong national defense and educational/scientific advancement.
Florida is the first state in the nation to achieve ballot access for Whig candidates. To date, members and leaders of the national Modern Whig movement have been invited to play a role in GOP and Democratic initiatives while pushing their own common sense, non-fringe agenda of what some have called the fastest growing mainstream political party in the nation.
