Political Action Arm of Nation's Largest Taxpayer Group Supports Jenkins in Republican Primary

    ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Residents of
 Louisiana's 6th Congressional District need a true taxpayer advocate who
 will courageously fight for lower taxes and limits on federal spending.
 That's the assessment of the National Taxpayers Union Campaign Fund
 (NTUCF), which today announced it has endorsed former Louisiana State Rep.
 Woody Jenkins in the March 8 Republican primary special election to replace
 former U.S. Rep. Richard Baker.
     "Woody Jenkins proved his talent as a tax-fighter during his many years
 of service in the Louisiana Legislature," NTUCF President Duane Parde said.
 "Backed by his strong, pro-taxpayer record, Woody will serve as a powerful
 voice on Capitol Hill to curb Washington's wasteful ways. He is a true
 leader of the conservative fiscal policy movement."
     During his nearly 30-year tenure in state office, Jenkins authored more
 than 300 major bills that were enacted into law - including tax-cutting
 legislation that ultimately saved Louisiana residents more than $3 billion.
 Jenkins, who has never voted for a single tax increase, also authored a
 provision in the Louisiana Constitution prohibiting the State Legislature
 from raising state personal or corporate income taxes (a law which later
 was repealed after Jenkins left office). Indeed, such hallmarks of fiscal
 responsibility led the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) to name him
 "Outstanding State Legislator in America."
     "Woody Jenkins is not some go-along-to-get-along member of his party's
 establishment, but is instead a genuine crusader on behalf of lower taxes,
 limited government, and economic freedom," Parde concluded. "Louisianans
 and Americans everywhere need his steady hand in Congress to reverse the
 tax, spend, and borrow mentality that threatens future generations."
     Jenkins also supports permanent repeal of the Death Tax; permanent
 extension of the income tax cuts, dividend tax cuts and capital gains tax
 cuts; Constitutional limits on taxation and deficit spending; educational
 choice for taxpaying families who fund public schools; and legal reform to
 curb lawsuit abuses.
     Note: NTUCF is the political action arm of the National Taxpayers Union
 (NTU), the nation's largest grassroots taxpayer organization. NTU, founded
 in 1969, created the NTU Campaign Fund in 1994. Endorsement decisions by
 NTUCF require a unanimous vote on a nonpartisan basis by a five-member
 committee that includes two Independents, one Democrat, and two
