Wamp named among top young conservatives

Weston Wamp, the founder of the Millennial Debt Foundation and host of the popular "Swamp Stories" podcast about Washington D.C. politics, was named Wednesday among the Future 40 conservative leaders in America by Mavericks INC, a national network of conservative young professionals.

Wamp is the son of former U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp, R-Tennessee who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP nomination in Tennessee's 3rd congressional district in both 2012 and 2014. Since then, Wamp worked as an early stage investor raising capital for the Dynamo Fund and later starting the MDF Debt Foundation to organize events and raise awareness of the problems with the rising U.S. federal debt. Mavericks INC. said the Millennial Debt Foundation has organized "some of the most important forums in recent years about the fiscal future of America."
