Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives. With a lifetime score of 92 percent, Rep. Blackburn earned the title of “Taxpayer Hero,” a status she has achieved every year of her tenure in Congress. CCAGW PAC bases its endorsements on a candidate’s lifetime score as listed in CCAGW’s 2013 Congressional Ratings. Each candidate endorsed is a “Taxpayer Hero” with a lifetime rating of 80 percent or greater.
“During her tenure, Rep. Blackburn has served the citizens of Tennessee with great distinction and has evinced an abiding commitment to fiscal conservatism,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “On top of her prestigious voting record, she has worked with her colleagues to restrain the growth of federal spending to help make government more accountable and transparent to taxpayers.”Follow this link to read more.
