Modern Whig Party expands into Nevada and is officially recognized

Las Vegas, NV (November 29, 2012) - The Modern Whig Party of America is pleased to announce that the State of Nevada has officially recognized the Whig Party of Nevada as an official party. The Whig Party of Nevada is currently headed up by Jim Bacon, a U.S. Navy veteran and computer programmer. Jim Bacon had this to say in regards to the future of the Whig Party of Nevada, "The Modern Whigs are a natural fit for Nevada. Our message that individual liberty requires personal responsibility will resonate well with both rural and urban Nevada."

The official recognition of the Whig Party of Nevada is part of continued expansion by the Modern Whig Party of America, especially in the western states of the U.S. New chapters are in the process of being formed in Oregon, Utah, and Arizona. The national chairman of the Modern Whigs, Andrew Evans, had the following to say about the continued growth of the party, "The continued steady growth of the Whigs shows that people are responding to our message of effective solutions over ideology. The Whigs offer collaboration over confrontation. People are realizing that they must take action in American politics and government if we are to address and solve the issues that our nation faces. For far too long we have allowed our public officials free reign without proper citizen involvement. The Modern Whig Party of America just wants to serve and to be an outlet for citizens to come together and take action for a better America for all Americans."

Established in 1833, the Whigs are one of America's oldest mainstream political parties. They were the original party of Abraham Lincoln and four other U.S. Presidents. Revived by Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, the grassroots movement has quickly attracted tens of thousands of members. The Whigs have been covered by CNN, Time magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. They represent moderate voters from all walks of life that focus on a methodological approach to issues working for the most effective solution over a strict ideological approach. This Washington, DC-based national movement values common sense, rational solutions ahead of ideology and partisan bickering.
