PURCELLVILLE, Va., August 31, 2015 – The Article V movement has exploded across the country in the last twelve months, but the next three months promise even greater growth in the number of Americans calling for a Convention of States to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power of the federal government. The Convention of States Project will be launching an ad campaign on August 31st on The Mark Levin Show, ranked #6 in talk shows nationwide.
“Mark Levin’s listeners are true grassroots patriots,” said Mark Meckler, co-founder of the Convention of States Project. “We’re incredibly excited to reach even more of them over the fall and share a plan to restore America and preserve freedom for generations to come. An Article V Convention of States is by far the most effective way to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and we know Levin’s listeners will respond with enthusiastic support.”
Nielsen recently released a ‘State of Media’ report in the current issue of Talkers documenting that news/talk format is the #2 format in the medium and small markets around the country in the grassroots heartland. This data reflects that Boomers, Gen-Xer’s and Millennials are listening to on average 12 hours of news/talk programming every week. There is a natural affinity between Levin’s audience and the COS Project thanks in part to his Bestselling book, The Liberty Amendments.
History was made in 2015 with the filing of identical resolutions in 37 states calling for the use of Article V to combat the federal government’s overreach by bringing decision making back to the states. Dozens of state committees, ten state chambers, and four full state legislatures have passed the resolution, Alaska, Alabama, Florida and Georgia, since the Project’s founding in late 2013.
Through the advertising campaign, the Project hopes to recruit an additional 200,000 volunteers as well as a District Captain in every state house legislative district in America. The Project already has state teams in every state in the country, the leaders of which are available for interview along with Mark Meckler and Michael Farris, the co-founders of the Project.
