WASHINGTON, May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FreedomWorks PAC endorses Bruce Poliquin for U.S. Senate in Maine as the clear choice for voters who support free markets, fiscal responsibility, and constitutionally limited government.
After one-on-one discussions with Bruce Poliquin, a detailed look at his record and, most importantly, listening to feedback from FreedomWorks PAC members and allies in Maine, FreedomWorks PAC believes that Poliquin is the strongest conservative candidate in the race.
"Bruce Poliquin is a solid fiscal conservative who has already accomplished amazing reform as Maine's State Treasurer," said Max Pappas, Executive Director of FreedomWorks PAC. "He immediately took on Maine's debt-ridden pension system and managed to save taxpayers $1.7 billion, and he has been relentless in rooting out wasteful government spending. I look forward to Bruce Poliquin doing the same to the federal budget."
"With a degree in economics and over three decades of experience in the financial industry, Bruce Poliquin understands that the economy must be freed from the entanglements of government regulation before companies can grow and create jobs. Poliquin believes in constitutionally limited government, and he will join Senators such as Mike Lee and Rand Paul as a defender of liberty in the Senate."
FreedomWorks PAC has also endorsed the following Senate candidates: Jeff Flake (Arizona), Ted Cruz (Texas), Richard Mourdock (Indiana), Don Stenberg (Nebraska), Dan Liljenquist (Utah), and Josh Mandel (Ohio).
FreedomWorks PAC is a grassroots service center for over 1.6 million activists nationwide dedicated to fighting for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom in every Congressional district in America.
