Leaders of the Tea Party Patriots are setting up their group to have a larger, more effective voice in future elections by getting to work now.

Prominent members of the group voted to start a political action committee in early 2013 with the specific intention of being more involved in the midterm election in two years, reported The Hill.

"Having a PAC gives us more tools that we can use to fight — especially when it comes to express advocacy for or against a candidate,” said Jenny Beth Martin, a founding member of TPP.

“If our competition and the opposition, the people who are not for fiscal responsibility, if they're using all the tools at their disposal and we're leaving some of the tools on the sideline, we may not be fighting as effectively as we could be.”

Following the lead of several other Tea Party-related groups whose PACs participated in the 2012 election cycle, TPP likely will play a role in primaries during the lead-up to 2014, as well as in pushing conservative candidates in the general election.
