    Run Raúl Run: FreedomWorks Urges Raúl Labrador to Run for House Majority Leader

    FreedomWorks is mobilizing its membership to urge Rep. Raúl Labrador (ID-1) to run for House Majority Leader, following Eric Cantor’s resignation after his primary upset. Activists are calling on Rep. Labrador to run, as well as contacting their representatives in the House to support him. The leadership election will be on June 19, with Rep. Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) currently the only one in the race.

    FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe commented, “Americans deserve a choice in leadership, and Republicans should have learned by now that ‘the next guy in line’ isn't entitled to the next rung on the ladder. Raúl Labrador is the perfect leadership choice for constitutional conservatives who are ready to shake things up in Congress. He has an authentic commitment to rejecting special interests, and defending limited government.”

    “Kevin McCarthy represents the status quo of growing government and spending money we don’t have. We encourage Rep. Labrador to enter the race for House Majority Leader because he would have the courage to give grassroots America a voice in Washington and make DC listen.”

    Rep. Labrador currently has a 92 percent lifetime score on FreedomWorks’ Congressional Scorecard.

    Grassroots activists are asking Rep. Labrador to run by calling his office, tweeting at @Raul_Labrador with #RunRaulRun, and sending a message to their representative to support his run.

    FreedomWorks is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6.5 million activists who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government. For more information, please visit www.FreedomWorks.org or contact Jackie Bodnar at JBodnar@FreedomWorks.org.
