Brad was born and raised in Saint Paul. He graduated with an Accounting degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 1992.
It was upon graduation from college when Brad started to foster his conservative ideals. Hearing Rush Limbaugh for the first time helped him realize what was really in his heart.
Since 2001, Brad has been very active politically. In 2004 he was named leader of the Minnesota chapter of Protest Warrior, a counter-protest organization whose sole purpose is to point out the absurdity of the political left by parodying their empty slogans. He also volunteered in the 2004 re-election campaign of President Bush as well as the 2006 Senate run of Mark Kennedy. From 2006-08, Brad was Chair of Coon Rapids precinct 5-3 in House District 49B. Now part of the Northern Alliance Radio Network, Brad can be heard every Sunday from 1:00 pm until 3:00 PM Central time on Twin Cities station AM 1280 The Patriot.
Brad and wife Jennifer now reside in Ramsey.
He is the founder of The Brad Carlson blog.
