"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.

Big Green v. Trail Candidates in WI

TPAC believes Wisconsin will be one of the key "trail" battle states in our race to unseat the anti-access and pro-regulatory majority in the U.S. Senate. The WI Primary is tomorrow and it looks like it will pit Tammy Baldwin (who has been endorsed by Big Green) against several pro-trail candidates.

TPAC believes the two top pro-access candidates who are leading in the polls are Tommy Thompson and Mark Neumann. Thompson is the former governor and is a motorcycle rider and one-time (or current) member of the American Motorcyclist Association. Thompson has also been endorsed by rocker Ted Nugent -an avid outdoorsman from the "hook and bullet" community.

Neumann also appeared to be pro-access and against overregulation while serving in Congress. He has the endorsement of Senator Rand Paul - a real champion who is working to stop the EPA from abusing the public via its excessive regulatory agenda.

TPAC is not sure who will win the primary battle between the access candidates, but we are committed to supporting the eventual winner against Baldwin who would be a strong environmental ally of Senator Harry Reid and support his ongoing efforts to block Senate votes on pro-trail and regulatory reform House bills.

TPAC believes the trail and outdoor communities should work together to help make sure this battleground state elects a pro-access candidate to the U.S. Senate on November 6.
