Americans for Prosperity Foundation President Tim Phillips and RightOnline Executive Director Erik Telford available for interview

LAS VEGAS, July 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the political battleground state of Nevada, hundreds of grassroots activists will gather together at the Venetian in Las Vegas on July 23 and 24 for AFP Foundation's (AFPF) 3rd annual RightOnline® Conference to learn how to become more effective in online activism and new media strategy.

While the Left's Netroots Nation brings Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Las Vegas, RightOnline attendees will hear from Rep. Sharron Angle, candidate for U.S. Senate and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). On Saturday, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will host a "November Is Coming" rally where concerned Nevadans will be urged to hold Senator Harry Reid accountable for his big government voting record.

Tim Phillips, president of AFPF and Erik Telford, Executive Director of RightOnline, will be available for interviews to discuss the future of online activism within the conservative movement and the effects of Harry Reid's big government policy initiatives on Nevada taxpayers.

Last year, 800 activists gathered in Pittsburgh for RightOnline and the event was broadcast LIVE by CSPAN and covered in the Wall Street Journal, US News and World Report, Politico, and others.

Please contact Mary Ellen Burke at (202) 309-1129 to schedule an interview.
