CONGRATS ON TRAIL VICTORY 2014!

Dear Trail Voter,

WOW! - YOU did it!!! Great job and many thanks to all of you who helped support TPAC's effort to elect a pro-trail majority to the U.S Senate and retain and grow our majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Our victory tonight means that pro-access and supporter of multiple-use of public lands, Mitch McConnell, will replace Harry Reid as the Senate Majority Leader. McConnell has been a longtime opponent of the EPA's regulatory agenda. TPAC expects McConnell will use a number of avenues to rein in the EPA and other federal regulatory agencies.

TPAC believes that Senator James Inhofe, an outspoken critic of the environmental movement's regulatory agenda, will replace Barbara Boxer as Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Trail users could expect to see Inhofe hold federal regulators accountable via rigorous oversight hearings and reform-oriented legislation.

Senator Lisa Murkowski, a strong supporter of access to federal lands, will replace Mary Landrieu as Chairman of the Senate Energy Committee. Murkowski would most likely work to enhance America's energy production and develop a common sense energy policy. She too would work to support regulatory reform of federal agencies.

TPAC nationalized this election to empower trail voters in states where there are no senate races so they can help shape the political landscape in Washington D.C. We also worked hard to get local OHV enthusiasts engaged with our endorsed candidates.

Again, congratulations to all of you on a job well done.

On Election Day, TPAC and many other political action committees were anxiously waiting for the polls to close and races to be called. TPAC was taking nothing for granted since the polling data and political pundits got almost everything wrong in the 2012 election.

Steve Daines (R) Gets TPAC Endorsement

TPAC is proud of our endorsed candidates and the battles they fought in their key races. Many were in tight races that were too close to call. Our goal to have a net gain of 6 or more pro-trail senate candidates was achieved and you can take a lot of pride in helping make that happen.

AK's Dan Sullivan (R) Gets TPAC Endorsement

Another goal for 2014 was to have OHV leaders and their riding networks become engaged with our endorsed candidates. That objective too was reached and TPAC wants to thank those leaders for their efforts!

Congressman David Valadao (C) Gets TPAC Endorsement

Again, many of our endorsed candidates met with TPAC representatives and local OHV leaders. Several events were at powersports dealerships. All of our endorsed candidates deeply appreciated the support of the trail community. For example, Tom Cotton posted our endorsement on his official senate website. David Perdue toured a powersports and tractor dealership and even tried out sitting in a SxS.

Here is an overview of how our endorsed candidates did in the election.

Senate
AK - Dan Sullivan - Sullivan is maintaining lead but too close to call
AR - Tom Cotton - WIN
CO - Cory Gardner - WIN
GA - David Perdue - WIN
IA - Joni Ernst - WIN
MI - Terry Lynn Land - LOST
MN -Mike McFadden - LOST
MT - Steve Daines - WIN

House
CA - David Valadao (Congressional District 21) - WIN
CA - Doug Ose (Congressional District 7) - Ose is maintaining lead but it is too close to call

TPAC is also proud that OHV was able to send support to Congressman Sam Farr to honor his efforts via HR1776 to reopen Clear Creek to OHV use. TPAC expects that bill to be reintroduced in the next Congress where it will face a more trail friendly senate.

Keeping our pro-trail senate majority will be tough in 2016. TPAC is looking to endorse Bill Cassidy for Senate in Louisiana as a firewall. His opponent, Mary Landrieu, is a tough campaigner and nobody can take that race for granted. The runoff vote takes place on December 6.

Thanks again for your strong support and watch for updates on the close races and our potential endorsement of Cassidy in LA.
