#NationalSecurityFirst launches in Michigan

March 3, 2016  |  Honorary Chairman Mike Rogers, News

Detroit, MI – Mike Rogers, Honorary Chairman of Americans for Peace, Prosperity and Security (APPS), announced that the successful #NationalSecurityFirst digital awareness campaign will launch today in Michigan, targeting likely primary voters.

Rogers, former Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, believes that national security must be top-of-mind for Michigan primary voters. “It doesn’t take much more than turning on your television for someone to realize that we are in trouble overseas. We need a commander-in-chief ready to deal with the immense threats facing our nation on day one. We are urging Michiganders to remember this when going to vote on Tuesday,” he said.

Beginning today, APPS will target likely Michigan Republican primary voters on Facebook, Twitter and with emails, displaying messages on the importance of thinking #NationalSecurityFirst as they vote for the Republican nominee to be our next commander-in-chief.

APPS has hosted 27 national security forums, with 14 Republican presidential candidates across Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Michigan. These forums drove more than $600 million in local and national earned media coverage. Video from the 27 past forums can be seen here: http://peaceprosperitysecurity.org/archived-forums/

APPS’ own polling has shown that these forums, OpEds, letters to the editor, emails, and social media posts have moved the needle for likely primary voters. From Iran to ISIS, Russia to China, likely primary voters in Michigan are greater attuned to the complex challenges facing America overseas. Today’s launch of the #NationalSecurityFirst campaign is the culmination of those educational efforts to help primary voters select a nominee they believe is ready to serve as commander-in-chief.
