The NMBC is a true grassroots operation that will educate individual voters about the candidates and issues in their district and motivate them to take that knowledge to the polls and vote.
It is the voter who will affect the change we need because educated voters will elect the best candidates when they understand the issues. Reaching those voters is where the NMBC will make a distinct difference in political races.

The problem is big, but NMBC is up for the challenge and will be in Virginia to demonstrate a solution. Article V gives us a tool to fix the mess in D.C.
