WASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FreedomWorks PAC endorsed Kurt Bills in the Minnesota Senate race following in-depth discussions with Bills, a detailed look at his record and overwhelming amounts of feedback from FreedomWorks PAC members across the state. FreedomWorks PAC believes Kurt Bills is the clear choice for voters who support free markets, fiscal responsibility, and constitutionally-limited government.
Kurt Bills has been a high school social studies teacher for 15 years, teaching economics and American government classes. The financial collapse of 2008 inspired him to take his knowledge to the Minnesota statehouse in 2010, where he served as a true citizen legislator, teaching classes in the mornings before heading to the statehouse.
FreedomWorks PAC Executive Director Max Pappas commented, "Kurt Bills has been teaching about government for years, and he understands its proper role under the Constitution. He supports empowering individual Americans to make their own decisions, and to take the risks necessary to create wealth, economic growth and jobs."
"Meanwhile, Senator Klobuchar has consistently voted for expensive government programs, such as the President's health care law, which raises taxes on the middle class and increases the cost of health care. She voted for many other regressive policies, among them cap-and-trade, the failed stimulus, and the Dodd-Frank bill. The U.S. Senate needs Kurt Bills to teach them ECON 101, so they can enact sensible and sustainable fiscal policies that put people back to work and the country back on the path to economic growth."
FreedomWorks PAC has also endorsed the following U.S. Senate candidates: Jeff Flake (Arizona), Connie Mack (Florida), Ted Cruz (Texas), Richard Mourdock (Indiana), Tom Smith (Pennsylvania), George Allen (Virginia), and Josh Mandel (Ohio).
FreedomWorks PAC is a grassroots service center to a community of over 2 million activists nationwide dedicated to fighting for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom in every Congressional district in America.
