FW PAC Newsletter: Update From The Campaign Trail


Hey Robert,

Enjoy this update from the campaign trail!

1. Rep. Walter Jones – North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District


This week, FreedomWorks PAC announced its endorsement of Rep. Walter Jones in North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District. Jones has long been an independent thinker in Congress, never content to toe the party line. He was one of the 25 Republicans who voted against John Boehner’s reelection as Speaker of the House, and has never shown any qualms about going against leadership. For the past three years, Jones has won our annual FreedomFighter Award for scoring over 90 percent on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard. He’s been a principled opponent of ObamaCare and wasteful spending, and has voted to support your civil liberties against government surveillance again and again. Click here to support Rep. Walter Jones.

2. Rep. Tim Huelskamp – Kansas’ 1st Congressional District


One of Tim Huelskamp’s primary challengers is boasting from a good year of fundraising. While the official FEC reports have not yet been made public, Roger Marshall claims half a million dollars in contributions at the end of 2015. This sounds impressive, but it’s important to note that $150,000 of that has been loaned to the campaign by Marshall himself. Marshall has also accepted donations from the American Congress of OB-GYNs PAC, which supported expanding Medicaid under ObamaCare. Meanwhile, Huelskamp’s team is reporting a balance of $774,000 at the end of the year, clear evidence that grassroots conservatives recognize Huelskamp as a genuine freedom fighter, not some establishment choice trying to buy his way into the seat.

3. Rep. Dave Brat – Virginia’s 7th Congressional District


The recent turmoil in the stock market reminds us of the importance of economic literacy in our elected officials. When lawmakers don’t understand how the economy works, they vote for bad policies that slow growth and cost American jobs. Dave Brat is one of the few who really gets it. Before his historic defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Brat taught economics at Randolph-Macon College for nearly 20 years. He understands that free markets, not government regulations, are what have made America the bastion of wealth and freedom it is today, and has spent his first term in Congress fighting to roll back the Obama Administration’s worst offenses. Most recently, he voted to oppose the Waters of the United States rule, in which the EPA seeks to redesignate private ditches, gullies, and ponds as “navigable waterways” in order to deprive landowners of their property rights.

4. Rep. Thomas Massie – Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District


Thomas Massie was first elected in 2012, following the rise of the tea party in 2009, so it’s understandable that he has deep ties to the movement. This week, he discussed the future of liberty in the U.S. with Reason Magazine’s Matt Welch. Unsurprisingly, Massie remains optimistic, and views the tea party as very much still alive, pointing to his home state of Kentucky’s recent election of Matt Bevin as Governor. And with people like Thomas Massie in office, there is good reason to be optimistic. Each year, he continues to introduce bold legislation to advance freedom in all of its forms. He has refused to compromise or back down, and for that, the establishment hates him. But time is running out for them to find a challenger for Thomas Massie. If they’re going to do it, it needs to be soon, and that’s why it’s important that we continue to show them that we have Thomas’ back. Click here to support Rep. Thomas Massie.

Stay tuned for more news of FreedomWorks PAC’s endorsed candidates as this very exciting election year progresses!
