Independent Action: Nonpartisan Group Dominates the News

Welcome to one of our weekly posts, Independent Action, where we let you know the important moves independent candidates and organizations made over the past week. This week we will be discussing Unite America and a few other under-the-radar candidates.

Unite America took a small, but important, part of the media landscape by storm this past week as they unveiled their new look and their Declaration of Independents.

At their press conference, Executive Director Nick Troiano introduced their five statewide endorsed candidates: Neal Simon, Terry Hayes, Greg Orman, Craig O’Dear, and Governor Bill Walker of Alaska

Their website is now up and running. You can watch the full press conference below.

Major news organizations weren’t afraid to talk about Unite America, either. Feel free to peruse through a few of the links below to read what other media outlets had to say about their recent efforts:
