A3P brings brass knuckles to fight leftist lawfare.

We fearlessly protect the rule of law. We are unfazed and determined.

The Article III Project team has experience in all areas of government and knows how to effectively fight Washington.
“What I want to do with the Article III Project is take off the gloves, put on the brass knuckles, and fight back.”
A3P Founder Mike Davis, as reported in The New York Times 

Mike Davis, A3P’s founder, led the most aggressive confirmation strategy—seating the most judges in the last 50 years.

We helped confirm 3 Constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices, over 230 Article III Judges, including 55 Federal Circuit Judges, and 13 critically important Federal Courts of Appeals Judges. And we’re just getting started. 

We drive constitutionalist judicial reform by… 

Grassroots Organization

We led the largest grassroots campaigns in SCOTUS history with over 2 million citizen contacts pressuring U.S. Senators to support Judges Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.

Driving the Narrative

Mike Davis is a fearless spokesman, accruing thousands of media appearances, punching back at the left's attacks, and equipping Americans with the information they need to take the fight to the left.

Building the Future

A3P offers clerkships to young lawyers seeking to pursue a textualist and originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution to form the next generation of the Judiciary.

“I started the Article III Project in 2019 after I helped Trump win the Gorsuch and Kavanaugh fights. We saw then how relentless—and evil—too many of today’s Democrats have become. They’re Marxists who hate America. They believe in censorship. They have politicized and weaponized our justice systems.”
