FreedomWorks PAC and Chairman Dick Armey have today announced their endorsement for Sharron Angle which will include a Get Out the Vote effort via their 4,400+ Nevada members. Here’s the press release:
Washington, DC – Today, FreedomWorks PAC announced its latest “Champion of Freedom” endorsement as part of the Take America Back in 2010 campaign.
Sharron Angle, a Republican candidate running for the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid, has won the endorsement because of her firm commitment to a strict, limited government, fiscally conservative agenda. Her record as a Nevada State Assemblywoman demonstrates she will not drift from these fundamental free market principles.
Angle routinely helped lead fights in the Nevada Assembly against big government power grabs during her tenure from 1999 to 2005. Most notably, in 2003 she was instrumental in putting the breaks on an $800 million statewide tax hike. Angle fought this big government boondoggle all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, ultimately ensuring its demise.
FreedomWorks PAC will support Angle in her election bid through an intense Get Out The Vote (GOTV) program that its 4,455 members in Nevada will lead. The primary elements of this campaign will include door-to-door literature drops, phone banks, and yard sign distribution.
FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey commented, “The Nevada Senate contest presents the limited government movement with the biggest opportunity to ‘trade up’ this election cycle. In no other race in the country can you find a wider divide between a big government incumbent and a courageous upstart challenger. When the dust finally settles, Harry Reid, one of the most entrenched and powerful liberal politicians on the national scene will be out of a job and Sharron Angle will give limited government conservatives not only in Nevada, but all over the country a key ally in the Senate.”
Tabitha Hale, a media coordinator and spokesperson for FreedomWorks, said their members will be actively calling GOP voters between now and Tuesday and that they will use polling data to target key areas for door-to-door lit drops and sign placement.
