A Grassroots SuperPAC

My name is Dan Barkhuff and I'm the President of Veterans For Responsible Leadership, an Emergency Room doctor, and a former combat veteran. We started as a Facebook group for veterans of all services and all party affiliations frustrated by the election of Donald Trump and the implications for our democracy.  Some of us voted for Trump, most of us did not. What we all have in common is that once upon a time we took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and now see the election of Trump and elevation of his agenda as a threat to our nation. We believe in America, and are open to any candidate, Republican, Democrat, or third party who can defeat Donald Trump and restore integrity, rational thought, and leadership to the White House. As a secondary goal, we aim to support veterans who have demonstrated integrity and rational thought as they run for positions of political power in local, state, and federal elections.  With your donations, we have now incorporated VFRL as a 527 SuperPAC and hired a web development team. Soon we will switch our fundraising efforts towards wealthy donors, and hire political strategists and media consultants to reach as many voters in critical states as possible with the message that there is a new generation of leaders ready to replace Trump and address the problems our nation faces with optimism, strength, thought, and where needed, grit. We believe there is nothing wrong with America that can't be fixed by what is right with America, and we aim to do it.
