CJ’s passion for politics extends offline and he has served in a variety of roles within Republican campaigns at all levels of government.
Ever since the 2nd grade, CJ has held an interest in politics, having closely followed the drama and excitement surrounding the 2008 Presidential Election and even casting his vote for John McCain in his class’s presidential mock election. Following the 2008 election, the 2nd grader underwent a thoughtful period of self-discovery, which ultimately resulted in his political worldview sharply diverging from the liberal household in which he lived. The ideals and principles of limited government, fiscal conservatism, and economic opportunity sparked a fiery passion within him – even at an incredibly young age.

Through his viral video commentary, Pearson has amassed more than half a million followers on social media and has garnered more than 100 million views on his compelling and impassioned video content. Pearson has also made frequent appearances in the national media and has been featured on Fox News, The Blaze, Newsmax TV, and One America News Network.
