Committee to Get Walker Running Supporters connected to Americans Elect and Concord Coalition
The Committee to Get Walker Running, a group trying to kick start a Draft David Walker for President campaign, has 10 public supporters on the morning of April 21 2012. This count comes from a causes.com web page prominently linked to on the front page of draftwalker.com. On a subsidiary causes.com web page, visitors are urged to sign a “pledge to become an Americans Elect delegate and support David Walker.” A few other people have taken the pledge there.
Putting those two lists together generates a set of 12 people supporting the Committee to Get Walker Running:
9 out of the 12 public supporters of this Draft David Walker effort are either campus leaders in the Americans Elect organization, leaders in the Concord Coalition funded by Peter G. Peterson, or both.
Update, 11:09 AM: Blake Wright’s LinkedIn profile has been updated, showing an upgrade from Regional Campus Director to National Campus Director for Americans Elect. That’s a prominent leadership and paid staff position within Americans Elect.
Blake Wright has also pledged to support David Walker for President.
That’s a direct violation of the Americans Elect neutrality policy.
