Ralph Reed Fires up New Coalition
Ralph Reed, who shot to national prominence in 1995 with his Christian Coalition, is back in the business of building political juggernauts with his new Faith and Freedom Coalition, a group he describes as “a 21st-century version of the Christian Coalition on steroids,” according to a report by the New York Times.

His warm greeting by attendees at a recent meeting of the Tri-County Tea Party in central Florida may be a sign of gaining some traction -- as he looks to impact the 2012 campaign by appealing to the millions of people who are pledged to the fiscal concerns of the Tea Party and embrace the values of evangelicals.

“That’s our market,” he says.
