WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks is proud to announce its endorsement of Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) to chair the House Republican Study Committee (RSC). Rep. McClintock has maintained an outstanding 96 percent lifetime score on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard.
Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“FreedomWorks is proud to endorse Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) to serve as chairman of the House Republican Study Committee in the 116th Congress. A proven champion of liberty, Rep. McClintock boasts a 96 percent lifetime score on our scorecard, meaning that he consistently votes on principle to promote limited government, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty.
“Rep. McClintock has experience working within the RSC already as the RSC Budget and Spending Task Force Chairman. In this role, he has played a key role working with the current chairman, Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), to craft and advocate for the fiscally responsible, balanced RSC budget proposal, at a time when Republicans have failed to cut spending as they have promised.
“The Republican Study Committee exists to provide support and real policy solutions for conservatives to fight for in Congress to help Republicans keep the promises they were elected on. Chairman Walker has provided strong leadership as chairman of the RSC and put together a great staff of conservatives dedicated to free market, constitutional principles. Rep. McClintock is the right choice to continue the growth of the RSC.”
