FreedomWorks Statement on GOP Retaining Control of the U.S. Senate

Following reports that Republicans have retained control of the House of Representatives, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Majority Leader McConnell has once again been given a majority in the Senate. He squandered the majority he had for the last two years by failing to move conservative priorities through the chamber. Our fiscal crisis is too deep and the time allotted to us to fix it is growing short.”

“Majority Leader McConnell and Republican leaders should learn from their mistakes and govern with conservative senators, not around them.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
