New Independent SuperPAC commences media campaign for US House of Representatives Congressional (CA-10) candidate Chad Condit of Modesto, CA.

Modesto, Calif. (May 23, 2012) – Today, icPurple launched an aggressive television and online media campaign in support of independent candidates across California, including Modesto’s congressional candidate Chad Condit.

icPurple is based on the core principle that by supporting moderate, independent candidates, this movement will encourage more pragmatic and solutions-oriented political behavior in Washington, D.C. and in states across the country.

“This is about building a movement,” said the group’s principal founder, Ted Waitt, philanthropist and co-founder of Gateway, Inc. “The ‘centrist majority’ — the 40 percent of the American electorate we have been hearing so much about in the news lately — are demanding pragmatic and problem-solving behavior from our elected officials once again. We believe independent minded voters will see this as an opportunity for more than just a statement vote, but as a chance for real political change.”

icPurple does not represent a political party or special interests, nor does it purport to have third party ambitions. The group’s core values are outlined in the newly authored ‘Declaration of Independents,’ stating, “I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I am an American.”

In addition to supporting Condit, publicly endorses independent candidates at the local, state, and federal levels in California and across the country. Those currently listed include Nathan Fletcher, Independent candidate for Mayor of San Diego, CA; Chad Walsh, Independent candidate for State Assembly in Silicon Valley, CA; and Linda Parks, Independent candidate for Congress in Ventura, CA.

After honorable discharge from the US Navy, Chad Condit, a native of the 10th Congressional District, went on to work for legislators representing his hometown, developing a keen understanding of the two-party political process. Now, running for Congress as a true Independent, Condit tells the Independent Voter Network, “Neither the RNC or the DNC cares about this district. They don’t care about us. We have more leverage in D.C. as independents, not as sheep following the herd.”

Outside of California, icPurple is also prominently supporting Angus King, the two-term independent governor of Maine seeking Senator Olympia Snowe’s (R-ME) soon to be vacated Senate seat. King is a beacon for the independent movement taking foot across the country. Speaking to in April 2012, Independent Governor King said, “What these folks [DC insiders] really respect more than anything else is electoral power. I think my election would send the message not only to the people in the Senate but also to the people in the country that there is a different way.”


icPurple is an independent political action committee dedicated to the election of independent leaders. The organization represents an ever-growing movement of American voters who are tired of government paralysis at the hands of partisan politics. They believe it is time for politicians to put patriotism above party loyalty and engage in pragmatic, problem-solving leadership.
