Company Summary

Socializing anything is fun, but in politics, it's also powerful because we create impact when a lot of people come together around a common idea. Ruck.us, the first-ever political social network, connects people around political like-mindedness, giving each user a personal political network that she can leverage for discovery or action. We monetize the pages reserved for candidates by turning them into highly functional digital toolkits.
