AIKEN, S.C. — With a month to go before the GOP presidential primary here, a group of activists in the basement of a local pizzeria called voters Tuesday evening to remind them of "corrupt politicians" and "special interests" hijacking their government.

Although the frustrated, anti-establishment tone is similar to rhetoric coming from some of the presidential campaigns, these volunteers weren't working on behalf of any White House hopeful looking for a victory in this early state.

Dressed in bright green T-shirts, with their iPads and flip-phones in hand, these activists are part of the largest grassroots operation on the right: the Koch-backed conservative group Americans for Prosperity.
