"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.

ACTION ALERT - No-Trail vs. Pro-Trail on Nov. 6

With just two days until trail voters go to the polls, TPAC believes we are still in a dead heat in most, if not all, of our key targeted White House, Senate, and House races.  Dozens of OHV clubs in various states are working hard right now to make sure their members vote for our trail candidates.  However, they need those of you who have not engaged your OHV networks to send out a personal note to your contacts urging them to go and vote PRO-TRAIL on Nov. 6.

Virtually all of TPAC’s key targeted and/or endorsed races are in battleground and/or swing states.   Our candidates continue to get pummeled by huge ad campaigns and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts funded by extreme elements of the environmental movement.    For example, left-wing activists have chartered bus-loads of protesters from the S.F Bay Area into Sacramento to try and defeat our trail champion Dan Lungren (CA –CD7).

Take nothing for granted.  Fire up your computer’s email list and get on your FACEBOOK page and urge your friends and riding buddies to make sure they vote PRO-TRAIL on Nov. 6.   There are two very different political paths that face each one of us in two days.  We still have time to have a positive impact on this election.  Your effort WILL make a difference.

Stay vigilant and continue to work hard  – your FREEDOM to enjoy OHV recreation on public and private lands depends on it!
