2012 offers the conservative movement, and by extension the Massachusetts Republican Party, an opportunity to develop an infrastructure which will be the key to our success next year and into the future.

The Scott Brown campaign, and by extension Victory, will be developing a GOTV apparatus that will be the key to Scott’s success in 2012.

I have been to many events over the past month. At most of these events, Victory field directors have been present offering help to down-ballot candidates.
