U.S. Senate Candidate Peter Coors Declares Support for Freedom Agenda
Colorado Republican nominee commits to Social Security reform, tax reform
By Adam Brandon on August 11, 2004
FreedomWorks today announced that Peter Coors, the Republican nominee for Colorado's open U.S. Senate seat, has completed the 2004 FreedomWorks/CSE Candidate Survey. The Democratic nominee, Ken Salazar, has not responded.
In completing the Survey, Coors commits to support the Freedom Agenda:
* Continued aggressive action towards Social Security reform that includes Personal Retirement Accounts without cutting benefits or raising taxes
* Fundamental reform of the tax code to include making permanent the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts
* Federal tort reform to end lawsuit abuse
* Welfare reform that strengthens the work/training requirements as proposed by President Bush
* School choice scholarships for kids in Washington, D.C.
Colorado FreedomWorks members will use the survey results in our Get Out the Vote campaign, which will employ literature drops, phone trees, and door to door efforts to let voters know exactly where Coors and Salazar stand on these important issues.
FreedomWorks Co-Chairman Dick Armey made the following comments:
"Peter Coors has joined the over 200 candidates for national office who have completed the FreedomWorks Candidate Survey this election cycle. We look forward to a spirited campaign that will focus on these vital economic and freedom issues.
"Unfortunately, Ken Salazar will not answer the Candidate Survey. Why is Ken Salazar refusing to let Colorado voters know where he stands?"
"It is exciting to see that Peter Coors promises to support Social Security Personal Retirement Accounts, reform of the tax code, and to stop lawsuit abuse. We commend Peter Coors for letting America know his positions on these key issues. "
