While political endorsements are often seen as mere stamps of approval, RED PAC takes the matter far more seriously. Their endorsement isn’t just a sign of casual support; it’s an emblem of a rigorous due diligence process that every candidate must undergo to even be considered for backing.
The first layer of RED PAC’s due diligence involves a thorough vetting process to ensure that the candidate’s platform aligns precisely with the PAC’s core principles of strong private property rights as a cornerstone of individual freedom and prosperity, increasing government transparency at the local level, promoting accountability, combating corruption, and ensuring that the government truly serves the people it represents and supporting increased energy independent economic development opportunities that acknowledge the significance of rural communities and their contributions to our nation’s economy. It’s not enough for a candidate to merely touch upon these issues; they must display a commitment to these ideals as central pillars of their campaign.
RED PAC’s endorsement is also based upon the candidate running an effective campaign. This doesn’t merely mean having a polished marketing strategy or a charismatic presence on social media. Instead, RED PAC looks for candidates who have a holistic, well-structured campaign that effectively reaches the voters and drives home the importance of the issues at hand. Efficiency, organization, and a deep understanding of electoral logistics are key components of what RED PAC considers an “effective campaign.”
Finally, RED PAC insists that candidates be vocal and transparent about what they believe in. In an age where political double-speak is rife, the PAC values candidates who are clear and unambiguous in their stance on crucial issues. Candidates must not only have the right beliefs but also the courage to publicly champion them, standing against opposition if needed.
Because of these stringent criteria, an endorsement from RED PAC carries weight. It signifies that the candidate doesn’t merely talk the talk but also walks the walk. Zac Howell’s endorsement, for example, wasn’t an arbitrary decision but the result of this exacting due diligence process. This is why his victory in the August 29th Forrest County Tax Collector runoff election is not just a win for Howell, but a vindication of RED PAC’s meticulous candidate evaluation process.
Through this strict due diligence process, RED PAC aims to set a gold standard for political endorsements, ensuring that they back candidates who are not only aligned in principle but are also effective, vocal advocates for the issues that matter the most to their community and the country at large.
