The latest update from the Modern Whig Party.
Revived by Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, the Modern Whig Party continues to gain momentum as a home for those moderate, mainstream and non-fringe voters who value common sense, rational solutions ahead of partisan bickering or strict left/right ideology.
As such, the time has come for a national meeting among party leaders, volunteers and others affiliated with this grassroots movement. The first Whig National Council meeting is scheduled for December 12-13, 2009 in Washington D.C., where the Modern Whig Party is headquartered.
There are many items on the agenda including electing a national leadership, plans for future growth, alliances with other political groups, and further elaboration of the Modern Whig positions on the issues.
