Why Drew

The national debt is spiraling out of control.

Our individual freedoms are eroding by the day.

The size and reach of government is outrageous.

There are few individuals who truly understand what is at stake, and even fewer who have what it takes to go to Washington and give a voice to the People.  Drew Carey is one of them.  Drew is one of the great television personalities and comedians of our time, but to Drew, the state of the nation is no joke.

We are Americans who call Ohio home, and are tired of watching helplessly while our state and country are ravaged by reckless and misguided government policies.  We are Americans who agree with Drew that “the answers to all the problems we face as a society won’t come from Washington. They will come from us.”

We are calling upon Drew to go to Washington and help break the shackles of the leviathan, so that we can finally be free as a society to solve the problems we face.

After searching high and low for an acceptable candidate for the US Senate from Ohio in 2012, we found that only Drew has the smarts, the principles, the name recognition, and the popularity to win and to truly represent us in our fight for the only thing we want: our freedom.

We encourage Drew to enter the Republican primary for US Senate, as the best way to truly impact the policy debate.


About Drew

Drew Carey was the youngest of Lewis and Beulah Carey’s three sons and raised in Parma, Ohio. He graduated from James Ford Rhodes High School in 1975.

He continued on to college at Kent State University, and after leaving the university, Carey enlisted into the United States Marine Corps Reserve in 1980 and served for six years. He relocated to Las Vegas for a few months in 1982, and for a short time worked as a bank teller and a waiter at Denny’s.

In 1985, he began his comedy career by writing jokes for a Cleveland radio show, and for the next few years, he performed at multiple comedy clubs in Cleveland and Los Angeles. He was first brought to the national eye as a comedian when he competed in the 1988 Star Search. Carey appeared on The Tonight Show, and Late Night with David Letterman, and played small roles on several television shows.  In 1995, the wildly successful Drew Carey Show was born, which turned Carey into a household name.

In 1998, Carey hosted the comedy improv show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and in 2007, Carey replaced retiring Bob Barker as host of The Price Is Right.

Carey vocally defends the principles of limited government, individual liberty, and free markets, having worked with the Reason Foundation on a mini-series entitled, “The Drew Carey Project,” in which Carey gets to the root of issues facing America and calls for common-sense libertarian reforms.

Carey summarizes his political views saying:

“I believe the answers to all the problems we face as a society won’t come from Washington.  They will come from us.”
