"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

Trail Access & the MN Senate Race

Dear Trail Voter,

*Note: New Email Signup on Rt. Side of Blog

After the Nevada caucuses, TPAC is directing its attention to the Minnesota caucuses being held on February 7, 2012. TPAC believes the Minnesota senate race is one of the key senate races on a national level. The election of a pro-trail senator on November 6 in MN could help install a pro-trail majority in the U.S. Senate where a number of pro-access House bills are stalled.

TPAC is using voter guides from several organizations. The League of Private Property Voters (LPPV) supports private property rights and multiple-use of public lands. The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) has a voting review committee comprised of hard-core anti-OHV groups including the Earthjustice Legal Defense Fund and The Wilderness Society. The score indicates a candidate's support for each organization's platform.

LPPV - 110th Congressional Scorecard - A high score here is a good thing!

Amy Klobuchar (D) - 40%
Norm Coleman (R) - 90% (this example is for comparison)

LCV - 111th Congressional Scorecard - A high score here from anti-access groups is not good!

Amy Klobuchar(D) - 94%
Al Franken (D)- 92% (this example is for comparison)

TPAC believes this election is critical for trail voters and is committed to helping ensure the trail community is effectively engaged in the election process.

Please consider a small ($5, $10, $25) or large ($50, $100, $250, $500, or more) donation

Thanks for your support!
