      Ginni Thomas

      Virginia Thomas, 54, is a special correspondent for the Daily Caller producing videos of emerging leaders and educators in the public square. Her ear is to the ground outside the Washington Beltway as a social entrepreneur. Previously, she was the founder of (nonprofit for citizen activists), and has worked at The Heritage Foundation, Hillsdale College's Washington office, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the senior levels of the legislative and executive branches of government. She has maintained her midwestern authenticity after 30 years in Washington, D.C. and enjoys motor homing and the Nebraska Cornhuskers with her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas. Her degrees are: Business Communication & Political Science from Creighton University, and J.D. from Creighton Law School (Omaha, NE).

A landscaper by trade, Greg Fettig is co-founder of the Indiana tea party group, Hoosiers for a Conservative Senate.

Fettig helped lead the tea party charge that propelled Richard Mourdock over six-term incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar in Indiana’s May 8 Republican primary. That effort led FreedomWorks’ Matt Kibbe to call the tea party activism in the state the “gold standard” in electioneering.

Fettig recently spoke with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas about why Lugar lost, the lessons he learned from the effort that could help other tea party activists, whether Mourdock will be able to win in November and much more.
