"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.

Wilderness Groups Target Heather Wilson in New Mexico

As the political parties gear up for their national conventions, TPAC wants to bring you some of the latest news as it relates to our efforts to elect a pro-trail majority to the U.S. Senate.

According to recent reports by Politico and the Washington Post,   there are five major anti-trail organizations now targeting Heather Wilson in NM  -- one of TPAC’s key senate candidates – for elimination.  Those groups include the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife, the National Wildlife Federation, and the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund.

Sources claim the groups intend to spend massive sums over the next few months smearing Heather Wilson and promoting their own candidate, Martin Heinrich.  Heinrich is also a board member of the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance.  That group has a long history of opposing responsible OHV recreation on public lands.

TPAC is asking you to help us continue  our fight to defend and support pro-trail candidates like George Allen (VA),  Dean Heller (NV),  Denny Rehberg (MT),  Jeff Flake (AZ), and Heather Wilson (NM) against attacks from determined anti-OHV groups.   These are must wins to switch the Senate power structure!


Your donation and support of our efforts WILL make a difference on Nov. 6!

Thanks for your support.
