"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.

Thompson and Koster Named Today as Key Races

With just 39 days until Election Day, TPAC is proud to announce  Tommy Thompson for Senate (WI)  as our 7th targeted key Senate race.  Former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson is in a very tight race against Tammy Baldwin.
Thompson understands OHV and OSV issues and supports responsible motorized recreation on public and private lands. On the other hand, Baldwin is anti-OHV and supports the excessive regulatory agenda of far-left environmental groups.  She is not main stream on our issues.
John Koster for Congress (WA CD-1) is our 4th key targeted House race.  Koster is in a dead heat with Suzan DelBene. Koster has been endorsed by the Northwest Motorcycle Association.   On the other side of the campaign trail, DelBene proudly lists endorsements from the League of Conservation Voters and the Sierra Club.
Here is our list of TPAC’s targeted key races as of September 28, 2012
U.S. Senate
Tommy Thompson (WI-Senate)
Dean Heller (NV – Senate)
Denny Rehberg (MT-Senate)
George Allen (VA- Senate)
Jeff Flake (AZ – Senate)
Heather Wilson (NM-Senate)
Rick Berg (ND-Senate)
U.S. House of Representatives
John Koster (WA CD-1)
Dan Lungren (CA CD-7)
Chip Cravaack (MN CD-8)
Ricky Gill (CA CD-9)
After talking with a pro-access Latino political leader in New Mexico yesterday, TPAC is also sending additional support today to Heather Wilson for Senate. TPAC believes this is one of the most critical senate races in the country.  It pits a pro-access candidate against a political colleague of Dave Foreman, Founder of Earth First!
TPAC is counting on your continued support and new support from trail interests who have never really been engaged the never ending political struggle to preserve and protect responsible recreational access to public lands.
Donate $10 - $5000 dollars if you want to be part of TPAC’s national strategy to elect a pro-trail majority to the U.S. Senate and keep our pro-access majority in the House.
Hey TPAC, I want to do my part with this donation
TPAC is encouraging you to stay strong and don’t let the current “polling debate” discourage you from fighting for your access rights via the political process.
Yours for more trail access,
Don Amador, Founder
The Trail PAC
