CRA "Smoke the Vote" Campaign

Jun 4, 2010 | By Andrew Nagy
CRA

The Cigar Rights of America announced this week that it is launching a national campaign to organize its members and impact the upcoming elections in November.

The goal of the "Smoke the Vote" campaign is to elect cigar-friendly politicians, putting smokers in a better position to combat new smoking bans and cigar taxes, or even roll back existing regulations that cripple the cigar experience, from sale to smoke.

"We hope that cigar enthusiasts throughout the nation take advantage of this fast and free means to become engaged with CRA and its work to battle cigar regulation and taxation," said Glynn Loope, executive director of the CRA.
