    FreedomWorks PAC Endorses to Protect Pro-Freedom GOP Incumbents

    Originally Published in FreedomWorks PAC on 3/17/14.

    Washington, DC- FreedomWorks PAC announced a wave of endorsements to protect sitting Republican Senators and Congressmen who are leading the charge to fight for limited government and individual freedom in Washington. Many of the following endorsed candidates distinguished themselves by earning FreedomWorks’ prestigious Freedom Fighter Award, which recognizes individuals who consistently vote on the side of liberty.

    FreedomWorks PAC’s first wave of incumbent endorsements includes:

    Sen. Sen. Jim Inhofe (OK); Sen. Tim Scott (SC); Sen. Jim Risch (ID); Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-04); Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05); Rep. Tom Graves (GA-14); Rep. Jim Bridenstine (OK-01); Rep. Mark Sanford (SC-01); Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01); Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS-01); Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06); and Rep. Ted Yoho (FL-03).

    “FreedomWorks PAC is working hard to bring fresh talent to the table, but it’s also critical to protect the new generation of leadership that has begun repopulating the Republican Party,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks PAC. “These are the champions of pro-freedom legislation, and grassroots-backed representatives who came to Washington and actually did what they promised to do on the campaign trail. We are proud to lend our support to these fiscal conservatives to make sure that come 2015, they are not going anywhere.”

    FreedomWorks PAC is a grassroots service center to millions of activists nationwide who are dedicated to fighting for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom in every Congressional district in America.

    I was very disappointed that FreedomWorks did not get behind ANY of John Boehner's Primary challengers.

    WTH is going on at Freedomworks?

    Your support for Tom Graves when you say FreedomWorks supports those elected officials that fight for limited government and individual freedom in Washington and that are champions of pro-freedom legislation, and grassroots-backed representatives who went to Washington and actually did what they promised to do on the campaign trail is appalling.
    Why should you help re-elect a Congressman that contributed to the collapse of a local bank, voted for FISA and voted twice for CISPA hoping to assist the NSA in violating our 4th Amendment rights, voted to allow 30,000 drones air space which most will be used to violate our 5th Amendment rights, who has voted to raise the debt ceiling and the continuing resolution increasing federal spending and debt, who has become part of the establishment supporting John Boehner and bowing to lobbyist?
    Why should we support a Congressman whose votes prove he does not keep his promises to be a constitutional and fiscal conservative? Tom only changed his habit of voting to increase the debt ceiling after someone announced they are running against him in the primary.
    Why should you support a Congressman that has accomplish nothing other than the continuous bombardment of Obamacare which has been useless, using it only to draw attention away his unconservative voting record?
    Why should you support a congressman whose voting record against financial responsibility and the U.S. Constitution is fact and cannot be denied?
    Tom Graves has not gone to Washington and kept his promises to reduce spending, taxes, and to protect the Constitution.
    It's time for a change.
