AFP Launches New State Chapter in Indiana

October 11, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS – Grassroots free-market group Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is proud to announce its launch of a new state chapter in Indiana, increasing AFP’s presence to 34 state chapters and affiliates. Spearheading this new chapter will be Indiana native and political strategist Chase Downham.

“We are thrilled to have Chase join the team and fight for increased economic prosperity and freedom in Indiana,” said Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity. “Chase’s work and life in Indiana and especially his efforts towards free enterprise and individual freedom at the Indiana Chamber of Commerce will prove invaluable.”

While his most recent job was with the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, Chase cut his teeth in politics working on congressional campaigns. He worked on campaigns for Congressman Scott Tipton of Colorado and Congressman Mike Pence. As Manager of Political Affairs for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, Chase was responsible for grassroots organization and election of Chamber-endorsed candidates for the Indiana House and Senate.

“AFP’s presence in Indiana will ensure that Hoosiers are in-the-know about key issues affecting their individual freedoms and economic success,” said Chase Downham. “We certainly have some important work ahead of us. That’s why I am looking forward to working with our 20,000 activists here in Indiana so we can keep our state moving forward.”

Moving forward, AFP-Indiana will work with small businesses and community leaders at the grassroots level to bring desperately needed jobs back to Indiana, protect taxpayer dollars, and limit excessive government spending and expansion. Moreover, AFP-Indiana supports Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s recent decision to join 25 other states in suing against Obamacare, which is a gross violation of individual rights and costs over $2.5 trillion dollars, ultimately resulting in higher costs for businesses and jobs lost.

“Thanks to his experience in Indiana politics, Chase understands the effort it takes to create lasting change,” Phillips continued. “His success in that field shows he is not afraid to do the work to make it happen.”
