Following Speaker Boehner’s resignation, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon noted how this is an example of grassroots politics at its best.
Here are the numbers on what FreedomWorks activists have done to bring about a new Speaker of the House:
- Over 130,000 signatures on FreedomWorks petitions to fire Boehner as Speaker.
- Over 24,000 messages were sent to Congress by activists demanding they remove Boehner as Speaker.
- Over 18,000 calls to Members of Congress urging them to remove Boehner from the Speakership.
- Over 4,000 signed the petition to stand with Congressman Mark Meadows after he filed his resolution to vacate the Speaker’s chair.
