In a message to the party email list, Modern Whig Party National Chair Michael Burger writes, “The hard work we’ve been putting in over the last few months to reorganize and rejuvenate our party is already bearing fruit, even though we’re just getting started on some of our outreach initiatives. We’ve had an influx of new, energetic members, and our new website and communications platform have tested out. We’re poised to begin the next phase of our development, and we are certain the next few months will see us grow to the point where we can truly begin to influence both politics and policy — which has been our goal all along.”

Modern Whig Party Granted Ballot Access in Kentucky

Modern Whig

(The following was originally published in the Modern Whig Party Facebook Group.)

“A phenomenal thing happened this week in Kentucky. The Modern Whig Party of Kentucky was granted Ballot Access! We join very few parties to have such luck, and we were the fastest to receive it – which makes since – as Kentucky is the home of great Whigs like Clay and Lincoln.

Let this be motivation for other states to continue to strive towards recognition. And if you’re a Kentucky citizen: consider running for local office as a Whig next cycle!”

Modern Whig Party of Kentucky and Modern Whig Party of America “endorse” Gil Fulbright for U.S. Senate

Modern Whig

(The following was originally published on the Modern Whig Party’s website as a press release.)

August 2, The Modern Whig Party of Kentucky and the Modern Whig Party of America  are proud to announce their endorsement in the 2014 Kentucky Senate race. Though Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell and Democratic challenger Allison Lundergan-Grimes are the most prominent names on the ballot, we feel as though political newcomer Gil Fulbright is more deserving of our endorsement and “votes”.

“Honest Gil” is running as an independent though affiliated with www.represent.us, and of the three Senate candidates this fall only Mr. Fulbright has delivered a truthful platform. His satirical look at our compromised race has highlighted the absurdity of out-of-state partisan funding becoming more important than in-state voter outreach. Gil may be taking a comical route with his political advocacy and awareness, but it is an honest message, and one that the people of Kentucky and America need to pay attention to and take action on.

Andrew Evans, the national chairman of the Modern Whig Party of America , commented on the endorsement, “ While Gil Fulbright might not be appearing on the ballot in November and his campaign is a satirical one, the message is not. It is a message that the Kentucky Whigs and Modern Whig Party of America fully support as it is also a part of our message. Even more important than that, the message of out of state partisan funding and extreme corporate financing of campaigns is the right message to hear and act on.”

The Modern Whig Party of America was founded by veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007. In 2009, the Modern Whig Party was officially launched. The Modern Whig Party is one of America’s fastest growing political parties. The core beliefs of the Modern Whig Party focus on independent thinking, integrity, collaboration, and using logic and reason instead of ideology to support policies.  For more information on the Modern Whig Party please visit www.modernwhig.org.

Modern Whig Party Endorses Josh Ramirez for Washington’s 4th Congressional Seat

Modern Whig

(The following was originally published on the Modern Whig Party’s website.)

Saturday, August 2, The Modern Whig Party of America endorsed Josh Ramirez’s bid for Washington’s 4th US Congressional District. Ramirez, a US Army Airborne veteran and certified Project Management Professional (PMP), officially signed the Modern Whigs’ Code of Conduct and Ethics to earn the endorsement. “Our Code of Conduct is the only requirement we expect of our candidates and public officials,” said Andrew Evans, National Chairman of the Modern Whig Party. He continued, “we are proud to support [Ramirez] because of his focus on independent thinking and collaboration in public service. He proved himself a public servant in the military and the type Washington and America needs.”

Ramirez plans to focus on a 21st century educational system and ensuring that Washington’s economic environment is conducive to the needs of business and workers. The candidate believes reducing lobbyist influence and eliminating partisan primary elections will help Congress focus on the American people, vice campaign funding. Ramirez explained these values pushed him to opt for a third party. “The party’s Code of Conduct was especially refreshing,” explained Ramirez. “To know that there is a party who puts the people before corporate entities, and who’s only condition of endorsement is [to] abide by this Code of Conduct…boldly contrasts the behavior of the two major parties these days”.

The Modern Whig Party of America was founded by veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007, and officially launched in 2009. The organization is one of America’s fastest growing political parties. The core beliefs of the Modern Whig Party focus on independent thinking, integrity, collaboration, and using logic and reason instead of ideology to support policies.
