The LI training I received was so detailed and effective, I truthfully believe I now know more about politics, campaigns, and how to lead and win and learned more in two days than I did over the course of my collegiate career.

Kaleigh Long

KaLeigh Long is the Executive Director of the Conservative Leadership Political Action Committee. In 2014, she served as US Congressman Rod Blum's Youth Coordinator and Coalition Organizer in the First District of Iowa. Upon Congressman Blum's success in a D+5 district, KaLeigh continues youth outreach with volunteer recruitment for Young Americans for Liberty, Young Americans for Freedom, College Republicans, and many other Conservative organizations.

KaLeigh became politically active when she was recruited to her school's varsity speech and debate team at 14 years of age. As a two time National qualifier and consecutive state Champion, KaLeigh boldly and rhetorically spoke up for the preservation of life and limited government in liberal predominance. In high school, she also extended activism to the front page of “Tulsa World” and other newspapers in her home state. In addition, KaLeigh platformed Oklahoma's televised news stations, while becoming a spokeswoman for Oklahoma Blood Institute as a bone marrow donor.

In December of 2015, she will receive her Bachelors in History and certification in Arabic from College of the Ozarks, also known as Hard Work U. Despite the rigor of earning her college degree in 2 and a half years and working three jobs, she has also served with the Pain Capable Child Protection Act in the US Senate. KaLeigh remains passionately persistent for the sole preservation of life, liberty, and property in a constitutional and classically liberal limited government. Her inspiration derives from her devotion to God and love for her family.
