RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The second-place finisher to Thom Tillis in last year’s Republican U.S. Senate primary wants to bring together like-minded constitutional conservatives into an organization for grassroots activism in North Carolina.

Greg Brannon of Cary announced Thursday the formation of the non-profit group Organize for Liberty he said is based on the same principles he ran on in 2014.

A news release envisions the group having local chapters. The group’s web site suggests raising money through sponsoring groups and corporations.

Organize for Liberty is formed under a federal tax provision that allows the group to participate in politics and receive unlimited donations. Donors don’t have to be disclosed.

Brannon teased the group’s formation with a video Wednesday recorded outside the governor’s mansion, raising brief speculation about another bid for statewide office.
