Tom is a long-time national conservative political activist, writer, publisher, organizer, and consultant. He is known primarily for his pro-life work and his defense of traditional marriage. He has also been a long-time fierce advocate for the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, private property rights, economic liberty, fundamental tax reform, secure borders, and the maintenance of American sovereignty and security through a Reaganite peace through strength foreign policy.
Tom is the primary author of the Equal Protection for Posterity Resolution, which is revolutionizing how Americans look at what must be done to stop the abortion holocaust. He was also the primary author of the America's Party Platform, which was first ratified in 2008.
He was closely associated politically for many years with former Reagan administration official and U.N. Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes.
In 2008 Tom Hoefling, along with many stalwart Reagan conservatives from across the country, founded America's Party, a long-term project designed to rebuild principled government of the people, by the people, and for the people, without regard to political party affiliation. Since its inception, Tom has served as the party's national chairman.
In February of 2012, America's Party, in convention, nominated Tom Hoefling to be its standard-bearer for the office of President of the United States. Tom was later unanimously nominated for President by the state convention of the American Independent Party of California. Tom then garnered more than 40,000 votes in the November General Election, placing eighth in the popular vote nationally, according to the Federal Election Commission. If write-ins votes had been tallied in many states, no doubt he would have placed considerably higher.
On December 2, 2013 Tom Hoefling announced his intention to seek the 2014 Republican nomination for Iowa Governor. Tom went on to garner more than 26,000 votes in the June 2014 primary, running against the longest-serving governor in American history, Terry Branstad.
Since then, Tom has continued his national, state, and local efforts to strongly urge his fellow citizens to return to the moral and constitutional basis of American liberty and self-government.
Tom Hoefling is among the few political leaders who is rated by American Right to Life as a Tier One Personhood Pro-Lifer.
In November of 2015, Tom Hoefling was listed by Newsmax as one of America's Top 100 Most Influential Pro-Life Advocates.
