Here’s the press release from FreedomWorks, a conservative national group chaired by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey:
Washington, DC- FreedomWorks PAC announced its endorsement of Mark Meadows for Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District following in-depth discussions with Meadows, a review of the candidates in the race, and input from FreedomWorks PAC members in the district. FreedomWorks PAC believes Mark Meadows is the clear choice for voters who support free markets, fiscal responsibility, and constitutionally-limited government.
Mark Meadows is a citizen activist who has been fighting for pro-growth, fiscally conservative policies for decades. He supports cutting spending to balance the budget, opposed TARP and its sister bailouts, and promises his vote to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a patient-centered health care plan.
Meadows is also a successful entrepreneur with over 27 years of experience, where he created jobs in the district and stimulated small-business growth.
FreedomWorks PAC Executive Director Max Pappas commented, “Mark Meadows is a courageous defender of free-markets. He is a proven leader who speaks the truth about the economic reforms needed in Washington, even when the truth isn’t politically popular. Meadows offers the right prescription for what ails us—promoting job creation by cutting red tape and regulations, lowering taxes, and removing barriers to trade. He understands that to enable private sector job creation, government doesn’t need to come up with a new scheme, they just need to get off our backs.”
