Dustin Stockton, Co-Founder & Chief Strategist
As a father of four, Dustin knew he could not sit idle and watch while their future was destroyed by elected officials controlled by special interest groups. Believing that the most effective way to make a difference was to support candidates that would fight for “We the People,” he formed the Western Representation PAC with his dad. What began as a conversation during Thanksgiving dinner in 2009 has emerged as one of the largest and fastest growing political groups in the nation.
Seeing that there was something different about this 27 year old activist, the Tea Party Express invited Dustin to become a speaker on their national bus tour. Beginning in Searchlight Nevada, the home of Harry Reid, Dustin traveled over 9000 miles speaking at nearly 60 rallies. This experience allowed him to connect with Patriots across America proving that not all young people have been taken over by the Progressives.
Dustin was a debate champion in high school and college, often dealing with the wrath of his professors when arguing a Conservative position. His earliest experience speaking to a crowd was as a national finalist in the National History Day competition in Washington DC. He had won the State Jr. High competition while in the sixth grade.
Dustin’s ability as a political strategist was proven during the 2010 campaign as he developed new methods of using a combination of traditional and social media to make a difference in several key races across the nation. Additionally, Dustin’s first book, Community Organizer: A Tea Party Story, recounting his journey from forklift operator to leading political activist, is available on Amazon.
