American Majority Action is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit political action organization devoted to equipping and mobilizing conservative grassroots activists to bring about political change, primarily at the local and state levels.
Founded in August 2010, American Majority Action has been a growing force for conservative political action and change in key races in several states. American Majority Action is affiliated with American Majority, a nonprofit political training organization that identifies and trains grassroots candidates and activists for local and state campaigns. Despite this unofficial connection, AM Action was founded as an independent organization. American Majority Action is led by its founder and president, Ned Ryun.
2010 Midterm Elections
During the 2010 Congressional elections, American Majority Action established six "Liberty Headquarters" locations across three states. In Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Ohio, American Majority Action opened offices in which they provided campaign materials, phone banks, block walking lists, precinct research, and campaign strategy for Tea Party volunteers in order to elect conservative candidates in key federal, state, and local races.
Voter Fraud App
In October 2010, American Majority Action released the Voter Fraud App, a free downloadable program for iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android smart phones developed to report and track illegal voting activity at polling places across America. Using photographs and text, the Voter Fraud App compiled a list of vote fraud incidents and was updated in real-time throughout election day. The Voter Fraud App was the first of its kind, and its release received coverage on Fox News, HotAir.com, BigGovernment.com and many other news outlets.
American Majority Action, along with American Majority, was a key player in the 2011 Wisconsin protests surrounding Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's budget repair bill. American Majority Action, along with American Majority, organized the "I Stand With Walker" rally on February 19, 2011, providing transportation for protestors from all over the state of Wisconsin. Thousands of Tea Party protestors gathered at the Wisconsin State Capitol to support Walker's legislation. The rally, organized over the course of 48 hours, included speeches by Ned Ryun, Andrew Breitbart, Herman Cain, novelist Brad Thor, and others.
