About Us

America Rising PAC was founded in Spring 2013 for the sole purpose of exposing the truth about Democrats through video tracking, research, and strategic communications. We have uncovered countless instances of Democratic hypocrisy and taken action to hold them accountable.

In 2016, no one kept a closer eye on Hillary Clinton and Democrats running nationwide. The Wall Street Journal has called America Rising “the unofficial research arm of the Republican Party.” The Washington Post noted that America Rising used “opposition research and trackers to drive up Hillary Clinton’s negatives,” and Buffalo News remarked that America Rising was the “the rabid pit bull of the Republican [Party].”

In 2014, Bloomberg said we “rattled Democrats who were not used to losing the media’s story lines” and Washington Post’s “The Fix” named America Rising a winner of 2014.

We are constantly adding new politicians, candidates, and party officials to our tracking list as the “the major clearinghouse for opposition research within the GOP.” In the 2018 midterm cycle, we successfully worked to expose the hypocrisy of Democrats across the country, defeating incumbent Democratic Senators: Joe Donnelly, Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp, and Bill Nelson. We already have an eye on 2020 White House hopefuls through our 2020 Initiative which Politico profiled as the “beneath-the-radar effort to define — and ultimately derail — the Democrats preparing to take on President Donald Trump in 2020.”

With your support, we can add to the list of Democrats we are tracking and continue to rack up more wins for Republicans. We are donor-supported and contributions from people like you allow us to continue our work. If you have any feedback or tips that can help us hold Democrats accountable, write us anytime.
