This independent expenditure group was newly organized in 2010 by the Northwoods Patriots, a Tea Party organization based in Eagle River, Wisconsin.

In fall 2010 the group ran a newspaper ad campaign in support of Republican and in opposition to Democratic candidates for the 34th Assembly District, governor, attorney general and lieutenant governor.

This organization registered with the Government Accountability Board following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC as a corporation making independent disbursements in the Fall 2010 state elections. The committee formally ceased operations in early 2011.
