Becoming a Trailblazer
The Trailblazer Program follows in the footsteps of the successful Young Guns Program, which is widely credited with helping Republicans win the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010.
Three Steps to Victory
The program, focusing on state Assembly and Senate seats, consists of 3-tiers that candidates must reach progressively in order to advance in the program: 1 Pathfinder, 2 Rising Star and 3 Trailblazer.
Rigorous fundraising and campaign benchmarks are required before advancing to the next tier. As our members advance through the tiers, additional support is given to ensure a strong and competitive campaign.
Ongoing Education and Support
In addition to the rigorous goals set by the 3-tier framework, the Trailblazer Program also provides resources of ongoing education for candidates to learn campaign fundamentals. Candidates will have access to industry professionals to assist in developing finance, grassroots, administrative, and political plans.
The program will supply quality fundraisers, coalition building experts, media training, issue briefings and more to ensure Trailblazer candidates have the tools to win on Election Day.
