From Andrea Zelinski at Post Politics:
Mark Braden — a lobbyist, public relations guru and former campaign manager for U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker — is launching a nonprofit aimed to impress upon the masses the benefits of conservatism.
Paperwork filed with the Secretary of State on Monday for “Tennesseans for Conservative Action” listed two fellow incorporators: Republican House Speaker Beth Harwell’s former chief of staff Gregory Gleaves, who has since started his own campaign consulting and direct mail firm, and former Tennessee Republican Party Chairwoman Robin Smith, who ran unsuccessfully for a open congressional seat in 2011, losing to U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann. Braden is vice president of Mercury, described as a “high-stakes public strategy firm.”
The TCA’s goal is “to inform and educate the public of the proven conservative principles that, when applied in governing, serves the best interests of the individual, the culture of freedom and the government of all people,” said Gleaves, who declined to comment further… The organization has already staked out a Facebook page and a website, the latter of which is not yet operational. Gleaves said the organization plans to launch in several weeks, but declined to say how TCA plans to achieve its mission.
UPDATE/NOTE: The group set up a website, HERE.
