RedState has rapidly become one of the most influential voices of the conservative grassroots. The site, managed by Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson, is comprised of blog entries from Erickson, volunteer contributors, and RedState registered users.
The RedState Morning Briefing stays ahead of other news sources by delivering breaking news and analysis by 5AM every weekday morning. Its audience includes everyone from grassroots activists to talk radio hosts, television pundits, and print journalists. The RedState Morning Briefing’s hard-hitting frankness attracts a powerful, loyal following and it experienced skyrocketing circulation from a few hundred to over 270,000 subscribers today.
The RedState Morning Briefing was the most frequently cited ‘go-to political blog’ for conservatives featured on Time Magazine’s list of“40 Under 40” rising stars in American politics. Those who recognized RedState included Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley, George P. Bush, Sean Duffy, Nick Ayers, and Mike Lee.
RedState’s annual RedState Gathering conference draws an all-star lineup of conservative leaders and, in 2011, served as the launch pad for Governor Rick Perry’s presidential bid.
RedState Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson is one of the fastest-rising leaders in the conservative movement. He appears regularly as a contributor on Fox News and has a nightly radio program on WSB in Atlanta.
