Washington, DC- Following news that Bruce Poliquin won the seat for Congress in Maine’s second district, FreedomWorks for America President Matt Kibbe commented:
"Rod Blum won by defining himself as a defender of liberty ready to shake things up in Washington. He gained the trust and support of the grassroots by standing up for them, not catering to the lobbying class in DC. With the support of other small-government rock stars like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, Blum flipped a Democrat district. This is proof that when Republicans give voters a principled alternative agenda to the failed big government policies of the Obama administration, they win."
FreedomWorks for America is a grassroots service center to over 6.6 million activists supporting candidates who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government.
