WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to Gov. Doug Ducey’s (R-Ariz.) decision to appoint Former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) to the late Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) Senate seat, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., faces an important decision in the coming days that will have national implications in the 2020 and 2022 election cycles. These elections will determine the political fate of an entire generation of Americans. The stakes could not be higher.

The bold agenda undertaken by President Trump will get bogged down by obstructionism from House Democrats. Divided government will once again rear its ugly head.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to reports that President Donald Trump is open to adding sentencing reforms to the prison reform bill, the FIRST STEP Act, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:
