Conservative advocacy non-profit FreedomWorks, which helped foster the Tea Party movement, and Brexit founder Nigel Farage are backing a month-long tour to recruit grassroots support.
“America’s Comeback Tour” will stump in nearly a dozen states starting next month “to restore America’s founding principles,” according to a statement Monday announcing the tour.
“Right now, many in the conservative movement are feeling scared, angry, and demoralized for a number of reasons,” Farage stated.
“That’s where the grassroots, organizations like FreedomWorks, come in. It’s our job to reach out to people who feel the same way we do, who believe that this country can be better than the pessimistic worldview being proffered under Joe Biden’s America.”
“The American conservative movement can take back this country by offering people a hopeful image of the future,” he said.
In his own statement, FreedomWorks president Adam Brandon charged the Biden administration “is pushing forward a far-left agenda to fundamentally transform America from a constitutional republic to a direct democracy.”
“It is critical that we maintain our republican institutions. The best way to do that is on the ground in partnership with the grassroots,” he added, noting that by partnering with Farage the group can “energize our activists in the field.”
Brandon is also host of “Save the Nation” on Newsmax TV on Sundays at 11 am ET.
The tour starts May 4 in Perrysburg, Ohio and ends May 29 in Jackson Hole, Wy. In between, the tour will hit Chicago; Tulsa, Okla.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Palm Beach, Fla.; San Antonio, Texas, and; Phoenix, Ariz.
