Don’t Miss A Rising Conservative Star

I met Raz Shaver in 2010. Even though he’s many years my junior, Raz has been an insightful, patient, and indispensible to mentor in grassroots activism.


Raz continues to help me and St. Louis Tea Party Coalition from his bunker in Texas. He also helps groups like St. Louis Tea Party all around the country. Victories and 2010, those to come in 2012, owe, in a large degree, to Raz Shafer.

Selfless Availability

Raz jumped at the chance to return to the St. Louis area to speak at the October After Party on Thursday, October 18, at 7:00 pm at Pio’s in St. Charles. 

Why would he travel to an After Party?

Because Missouri holds the key to the US Senate, and Senate is key to reversing Obamacare and defending the Supreme Court.

Come Out And Meet Raz Thursday

Don’t miss your chance to meet a rising star in political activism. Raz will be at Pio’s, 403 First Capitol Drive, St. Charles, MO.

Here’s more:

Raz Shafer currently serves as Political Director for the Madison Action Fund SuperPAC and Director of Texas Action. Having been active in conservative politics from an early age, Raz attended Hillsdale College and graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Political Economy. Most of the intervening years have been spent working for American Majority, training more than 5000 conservative candidates and activists across the country to be more effective in their political efforts.

This election cycle, Raz is managing voter identification and GOTV efforts in a number of states for the Madison Action Fund and is preparing Texas Action for a very involved Texas Legislative Session this next spring. More information about Raz can be found at

Thanks, Raz. And thank you, in advance, for joining The After Party.

Special Thanks to American Majority

American Majority Action deserves a huge dose of the credit for Ed Martin’s tight race for Missouri’s 3rd district in 2010.  But their ground help in September and October was only the tip of the iceberg. 

Dana Loesch and I met American Majority back in April.  Ned Ryun, the founder and president, asked us to speak at the group’s Post-Party Summit in Kansas City.  The weekend was fabulous, informative, and fun.  That’s a winning combination, especially the fun.

Ned kept in touch throughout the summer.  St. Louis Tea Party helped coordinate American Majority training sessions which, in turn, helped spawn tea party and other grassroots organizations around the area, including the Southern Illinois Tea Party.

Testimonial from American Majority Post-Party Summit in KC

When election crunch-time arrived, American Majority Action was there. In addition to helping run our office on Hampton, they produced handouts, yard signs, and other materials to help in the campaign—materials far beyond STLTPC’s budget limits. 

Most valuable, though, were AMA’s people.  Beka Romm, Raz Shafer, Rachel Hassani, Austin James, and, of course, Ned Ryun are friends, leaders, and tireless workers.  They made Ed’s race and the STLTPC their mission and passion. 

Moreover, through AMA’s efforts and evangelism, young volunteers from Arkansas and other states poured into St. Louis the last week before the election for the final drive.  They knocked on thousands of doors, talked to thousands of voters, and spurred on the natives to push a little harder. 

In my view, American Majority is the most promising of young, new education and action organizations in the country.  Ned and his crew deserve our thanks. They helped St. Louis, and they continue to advance the cause of liberty. 

Please take a moment to add your name to their New Leaders project.  And, if you are able, drop a few coins in their bucket.  They do great work.
