“Defeating drug addiction in this country is possible ... education is prevention, and we should use our voices to raise awareness and stop this epidemic that is crippling our communities, our state, and our nation.”

I recently had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Miriam Adelson during a visit to the clinic she founded with her husband in Las Vegas in 2000. The staff at the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Clinic for Drug Abuse Treatment & Research is committed to treating those who suffer from opioid and prescription drug addiction. I was impressed with Dr. Adelson's understanding of the complexities of substance abuse, as well as her passion to address this deadly epidemic sweeping across Nevada and the rest of our nation.

When I toured domestic violence shelters in Maine and New Hampshire, advocates repeatedly discussed their concerns regarding the increasing misuse of heroin and prescription drugs in their states. During my tour of Dr. Adelson's facility, I was surprised to learn that Nevada has experienced an 80 percent increase in overdose fatalities since 1999, with opioid addiction playing a critical role in these deaths.

As first lady of Florida, I worked side-by-side with my husband, Gov. Jeb Bush, to fight drug abuse. When he assumed office in 1998, he was committed to raising awareness of the impact of substance abuse on our state, while simultaneously increasing resources for substance abuse treatment and rehabilitation facilities. In that effort, he established the Office of Drug Control, tasked with creating and implementing a comprehensive education and policy approach to combatting substance abuse in Florida.

Defeating drug addiction in this country is possible, but not without strong leadership and strong advocates such as Dr. Adelson and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval. I was also extremely pleased to learn about Nevada first lady Kathleen Sandoval's efforts to combat prescription drug use among youth. Nevada is fortunate to have these high-profile leaders working tirelessly to reduce opioid addiction.

Today I ask each of you to follow the leadership of Dr. Adelson, Gov. Sandoval and Kathleen Sandoval by taking a step to prevent substance abuse in your great state. Take time to talk with your children about the horrible effects of using drugs and the impact it would have on their future. Get involved with local efforts to raise awareness about the impact of heroin and prescription drug abuse on our families. I believe that education is prevention, and we should use our voices to raise awareness and stop this epidemic that is crippling our communities, our state, and our nation.






Cruz For President - Supporters Hold Over 200 Watch Parties for Cruz Rally for Religious Liberty 


HOUSTON, Texas – After seeing more than 2,500 attend Friday’s Rally for Religious Liberty in Des Moines, IA, the Cruz for President campaign announced that there were more than 200 watch parties held around the country to view the rally. Those hosting the parties were given special access to watch online and invite their friends and neighbors to their homes or churches.

“It was important for us to have our nationwide leadership use this opportunity to invite their communities to hear more about religious liberty from Senator Cruz,” said Campaign Manger Jeff Roe. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the response. It shows there is widespread interest in Cruz’s message and his fight to protect Americans’ religious liberty.”

Several watch parties in the early election states of New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada drew several dozen participants. More than two dozen activists from South Carolina visiting Ohio for a separate event took the time to gather and watch Cruz and his religious liberty heroes online.


Walker For President - Wraps Up Three-Day New Hampshire Swing 

Scott Walker For America


Governor Scott Walker today wrapped up a successful three-day swing through New Hampshire as he makes an aggressive play in the early primary state. Walker started the day by participating in the Politics & Eggs event at St. Anselm College in Manchester and then held a meet and greet with veterans at VFW Post 1617 in Derry. Along the way, he participated in interviews and took questions from reporters. See highlights below.

Governor Walker takes questions from the media in Derry

What They Are Saying:

Washington Post: "The biggest laugh at an Ashland town hall Thursday night probably came after an attendee began a question by referring to the presidential candidate as 'Senator Walker.' 'Gov -- governor,' Walker corrected him, with a smile, as others began to laugh nervously. 'You can call me Scott, just don’t call me Senator. I actually work for a living!' Walker’s low-key demeanor — he was raised in the Midwest as the son of a Baptist preacher — is among his key assets as a candidate, exuding an everyman quality that voters have received warmly on the trail." (Jose DelReal - August 21, 2015)

CBS News: "On a two-day swing through New Hampshire, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has sharpened his attacks on Hillary Clinton over the use of her private email server while she was secretary of state. 'She's either violated the law or she didn't know what that information was, which makes her incompetent,' Walker said at a Politics and Eggs breakfast hosted by Saint Anselm College in Manchester. 'Either of which disqualifies her from being President of the United States,' he added. 'One of our highest officials in this cabinet, with one of the highest levels of responsibility when it comes to the sensitivity of America's national security interests, and she's letting it be freely flowed over an unsecured server?' Walker asked." (Jacqueline Alemany - August 21, 2015)

New Hampshire Union Leader: "Scott Walker told local Republicans that he would not be intimidated by foes across the ocean or across the political aisle, and he promised he’ll fight forces within his own party as needed. The two-term Wisconsin governor added an edge to his anti-Washington talkThursday as he campaigned around New Hampshire. Walker repeated calls for repealing 'Obamacare,' lowering taxes, curbing government regulations and pushing for an 'all-the-above' energy strategy that leverages domestic resources. While touting himself as a proven fighter from his time battling unions in Wisconsin, he wrapped up his remarks before about 100 people at One Mile West restaurant on a positive note. 'I’m an optimist,' he said. 'As angry as people are today, I believe if it was just about anger people would have checked out. I don’t believe people are giving up on America. I’m certainly not.'" (Dan Tuohy - August 20, 2015)

Valley News: "Walker hit upon a number of boilerplate conservative themes including a smaller federal government, more authority for state and local governments, lower taxes, less federal regulation and a stronger military. His criticism of the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, drew a loud applause. 'As I look around this country and the things we need to do to reform government, we need to take the power out of Washington and send it back to the states and back to the people,' Walker said. 'When I talk about what we need to do to grow the economy, it starts first and foremost with repealing Obamacare once and for all.' ... Walker proudly spoke several times about his agenda as governor that has included billions of dollars in tax cuts. He successfully fought for legislation in his first term to curtail the collective bargaining rights of public sector unions and subsequently survived a recall effort and won re-election in 2014. 'What I went through a few years ago proves I’m not intimidated by anything,' Walker said at the beginning of his remarks. 'I’m not intimidated by liberal special interests, big union bosses or the establishment in my own party.' On national security, Walker was critical of Obama who he said has 'led from behind' and called for a return to the principles under President Reagan. 'We rebuilt the military, we stood up for our allies, we stood up against our enemies and without apology, stood for stronger American values and that brought about one of the most peaceful times in modern American history.' He also said he would terminate the recently negotiated international nuclear deal with Iran." (Patrick O'Grady - August 21, 2015)

Carly For America - Check it out first: New Infographic  

We all know and love Carly for her willingness to stand up to Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media for their lies. We all love Carly for her articulate analysis of the problems our nation faces and the thoughtful solutions she proposes to fix them. We all love Carly for standing up to the professional politicians and the insiders of both parties who further a rigged system that works for them but not for everyone.

But why else should we love Carly?

While many in this race promote their titles, positions or power- Carly has a demonstrated track record of delivering results. She knows how to tackle bureaucracies and transform organizations. She is the only candidate in this race that has the experience to once and for all bring the Federal government down to size.

Check out our new infographic.

The Democrats and their allies in the drive by media would love for you to believe that someone who has spent their entire life in and around government can also transform it- but we all know they can’t. It’s not that they are bad people. It is that they have been a part of the system for too long.

This is why we need a true outsider. An outsider with a demonstrated track record of transforming organizations. Take a look at the infographic we created to highlight Carly’s demonstrated track record of success.

Carly Fiorina is the only candidate in this race with a record of transformational leadership. Learn more all about it by visiting
