Advancing American Freedom Expands Organization to Mobilize Conservative Movement

Advancing American Freedom today announced that Tim Chapman, previously senior advisor, will become president of the organization, as the group moves to expand its operations. In addition, AAF has announced the promotion of Paul Teller, who has served as the group’s executive director since its founding, to Executive Vice President, enlarging his current policy, messaging, and coalitions work and overseeing a soon-to-be-announced portfolio that will ensure AAF builds the increased capacity to be a national leader in the conservative movement. Chapman has held multiple high profile leadership positions in the conservative movement over the last two and a half decades. Teller is widely seen as one of the nation’s most skilled conservative operators with an unmatched focus on building and maintaining conservative coalitions.

These changes come at a time of upheaval in the conservative movement, where Advancing American Freedom will continue to stand for the time-honored principles that have created a winning movement for the last 40 years. Earlier this year, AAF announced a goal of 20 million dollars for its overall 2024 budget and is currently on track to meet or exceed that goal. These personnel advancements reflect a commitment by the AAF board of directors, its founder Mike Pence, and our many supporters across the nation to build a permanent beachhead for conservative principles in Washington, DC.

“Tim Chapman is a principled conservative leader with decades of experience in the conservative movement and Advancing American Freedom is privileged to have him joining our leadership team,” said Vice President Mike Pence. “We’re in a time for choosing in the conservative movement, and I can think of no one more qualified to navigate this time and hold the banner of principled conservatism high than Tim Chapman. I am also grateful for the work of Paul Teller over the past three years and am thrilled to have him continue to serve as a critical part of the leadership team in this next phase of Advancing American Freedom.”

“Tim Chapman and I have been close personal friends for almost 20 years, so it’s a tremendous honor to get to bring him into this new role at Advancing American Freedom,” said Paul Teller. “Tim’s understanding of, and tireless work in, the conservative movement is one of the best in the business and has led to numerous policy victories across his many years. I’m eager to work closely with him and dive in on my expanded mission.”

“Advancing American Freedom has become the anchor for conservative principles amidst the winds on the right that have strayed from those conservative principles,” said Tim Chapman. “Our nation faces unparalleled challenges as the unhinged progressive left continues to take over our institutions and remake our way of life. It is critically important that conservatives meet this challenge with integrity, principle, and a clear-eyed determination to fight. Mike Pence exemplifies this attitude, and I am
honored to take on this leadership role on his team. Doing this important work each day alongside my longtime friend Paul Teller will make the tasks ahead even more meaningful and successful.”
