New Independent SuperPAC commences TV campaign for San Diego Mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher

San Diego, medicine Calif. (May 18, 2012) – San Diego’s “Movement to the Middle” recently made both national and local headlines. Today, the nation’s first Independent SuperPAC, named icPurple, has launched an aggressive television and online media campaign in support of Independent candidates, including San Diego’s Independent mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher.

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 Fletcher, the website icPurple.org publicly endorses independent candidates at the local, state, and federal levels in California, across the country. Those currently listed are: Linda Parks, current County Supervisor and Independent candidate for Congress in Ventura, CA; Chad Walsh, Independent candidate State Assembly in Silicon Valley, CA; and Chad Condit, Independent candidate for Congress in Modesto, CA.

After honorable discharge from the US Navy, Chad Condit a native son of the 10th Congressional District, went on to work for legislators representing his hometown and to developed 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 DC 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 POLITICO.com 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.”
