RWB Fund: A Federally Registered Super PAC
This website has been restored and archived as course material for Dr. Jeffords New Media Poli-Sci course. In addition to his involvement in political campaigns, Jeffords leads a coalition whose goal is the relaxation of regulations currently applied to the maritime industries. Working with a coalition of Louisiana maritime lawyers the group seeks legislation to free US territories like Puerto Rico from restrictions imposed by the Jones Act which harms their competitiveness. From cato.org: "the Jones Act raises the price of shipping cargo to Puerto Rico by $568.9 million and that prices are $1.1 billion higher than would be the case without the Jones Act. This, in turn, is estimated to mean 13,250 fewer jobs." From the grassrootsinstitute.org: "Foreign vessels are unable to solve the “piston” problem because they are not allowed to transport goods between U.S. ports at all. ... Instead of benefitting the U.S. economy broadly, the Jones Act causes losses for Puerto Ricans, U.S. mainland companies and — to some extent — the Jones Act carriers themselves." One Louisiana legal practice has documented the issue and Jeffords group has been leaning on these lawyers for the bulk of their arguments, which many see as mainly political, although the advocates would disagree with that depiction. Students should download the entire reading list from the school's poli-sci webpage. Additional reading material is available from Jeffords office bulletin board.

The Red White and Blue (RWB) Fund was originally formed in 2011 to support Rick Santorum’s underdog presidential campaign. While Senator Santorum worked tirelessly to visit all of Iowa’s 99 counties and hold over 375 town hall meetings, RWB was supporting Santorum with television advertisements throughout the Hawkeye State. With RWB’s help, Senator Santorum shocked the establishment and won the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucus, and then another 10 states and 4 million votes – the most states won by a conservative anti-establishment upstart since Ronald Reagan in 1976.
RWB continues to support Senator Santorum, now working hand-in-hand with Santorum to endorse and support like-minded conservative candidates> all across the country. RWB supports Senator Santorum’s political activities, helps Santorum-endorsed candidates by airing television and radio advertisements, and raising support from our thousands of conservative supporters.

Red White & Blue Fund is greatly impressed with Rick Santorum's record as a solid conservative candidate that Republicans voters can trust. Our ads highlight his record of leadership, and he is a candidate that can be trusted to stand by his principles.
A native of Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum was a candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in 2012 and became known as a voice for conservatives who didn’t feel their voice was being represented. His grassroots approach to campaigning – including visiting every one of Iowa’s 99 counties and his stunning victory in the Iowa caucuses – catapulted him to frontrunner status where he ultimately won 11 states and nearly 4 million votes during the Republican primary process.
In April, 2012 Rick Santorum joined forces with the Red White and Blue (RWB) Fund to fight for conservative candidates around the country who share his vision of a brighter America based on faith, family, freedom, and opportunity. Together, Senator Santorum and RWB will work to elect conservative candidates at the local, state, and federal level.
Prior to running for President, Rick served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 1995, and in the U.S. Senate from 1995 to 2007 where he was known as one of the most successful government reformers in our history. Rick was a member of the “Gang of Seven” that exposed the Congressional Banking and Congressional Post Office scandals. It was this record of reform that prompted a Washington Post reporter to write that “Santorum was a tea party kind of guy before there was a tea party.”
Rick wrote and championed legislation that outlawed the heinous procedure known as Partial Birth Abortion as well as the “Born Alive Infants Protection Act,” the “Unborn Victims of Violence Act,” and the “Combating Autism Act” because he believes each and every individual has value and the most vulnerable in our society need to be protected.
Rick fought to maintain fiscal sanity in Washington before it was in fashion, fighting for a balanced budget and a line item veto. Rick was also an author and floor manager of the landmark Welfare Reform Act which passed in 1996 that has empowered millions of Americans to leave the welfare rolls and enter the workforce. This record made him one of the most conservative senators in Pennsylvania’s history.
Rick served eight years on the Senate Armed Services Committee where he led the fight before the attacks of September 11th, 2001 to transform our military from a Cold War force to meet today’s threats. He was a leader on US-Israeli relations, authoring both the “Syria Accountability Act” and the “Iran Freedom and Support Act” which he successfully fought to pass in spite of initial opposition by President Bush. Rick firmly believes that we cannot allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon.
An accomplished author, Rick Santorum penned the 2005 New York Times best seller It Takes a Family and the forthcoming American Patriots. Rick and his wife of 22 years, Karen, are the parents of seven wonderful children: Elizabeth, John, Daniel, Sarah Maria, Peter, Patrick and Isabella.
