After an opportunity with Senator Jim DeMint, he moved to Washington DC where he worked for Rep. Sue Myrick as her Office Manager. Jamey now works for Lt. Gov.

MEET Dr. GREG BRANNON: – Greg’s story is not unlike the miracle so many in our great nation have experienced through hard work and God’s providence. Born in a working class neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles, Greg and his brother were raised by a single mom who set an example of hard work and determination. In a tribute to this example, Greg was the first member in his family to go to college, earning a scholarship to the University of Southern California, where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Science in 1982; his Medical Degree from the Chicago Medical School in 1988; his OB/GYN Residency was performed at Los Angeles County/ USC Women’s Hospital in 1992; and he was a Clinical Professor at UNC/Wake AHEC from 1993-1994 before opening his OBGYN practice in Cary, NC in 1993.
Greg and his wife, Jody, have been married for 25 years and have 7 children. As a Christian, Father and devoted husband, Greg is involved in coaching his children’s athletic teams, was a Charter Family Member of Cary Christian School, is a leader in men’s Bible Study for over 14 years, and has traveled the globe on Christian and medical missions in Africa and Central America. Strongly committed to the sanctity of life, Greg is a Board Member of Hand of Hope, a pregnancy support group in Fuquay-Varina, NC, and is a member of AAPLOG, an organization of pro-life OBGYN doctors.
MEET JEFF LEWIS: – Jeff Lewis is founder of Patriot Watchdog, co-founder and National Director of the Patriot Coalition, and National Director of the Federal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Coalition, aka FIRE Coalition.
As a four-time cancer survivor, and veteran of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Jeff knows personally a thing or two about defending life and liberty. There can be no honorable “pursuits of happiness” without defending our God-given inalienable rights, and there can be no honor without giving our “all” to preserve the Blessings of Liberty our Constitutional Republic provides.
MEET LUIS CHIANG:- Luis Chiang is a native from Lima, Peru and has lived in the US for the past 25 years. He is an industrial engineer by training, plus having an MBA, and a MS in Operations Research. After working for many years for an international development institution in Washington DC, he relocated to the Raleigh area, where he worked for NCR, IBM, and is currently at Oracle.
He has an avid interest in understanding and helping others realize the paramount importance of understanding the global financial system, and its role in the current economic crisis. On the surface, global finance seems overwhelming, intimidating, and difficult to understand, but after several years of research, Luis believes the basic concepts of global finance are very simple and intuitive. He is convinced every American should clearly understand the current economic crisis and exercise his political will making informed conscious deliberate decisions.
He is married with children and enjoys cooking, playing the guitar, and cheering the Railhawks.
MEET ROCCO PISERCHIA: – Rocco Piserchia was born in NJ and lived there until he relocated to southeast PA, outside of Philadelphia, for 11 years. He’s resided in Raleigh since March 2005.
