FreedomWorks backs Martha Zoller

FreedomWorks, a DC-based organization that has heavily promoted the Tea Party movement, released its first round of endorsements for House candidates yesterday. You’ll notice below that Martha Zoller, who is running against State Rep. Doug Collins, made the cut:

After a year of intensive research, countless candidate interviews, and input from thousands of FreedomWorks activists, including many in these districts, FreedomWorks PAC is pleased to endorse its first slate of candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Each of these candidates is a clear choice for those who want to rein in the government’s reckless spending and out-of-control growth.

  • Florida 22nd: Adam Hasner
  • Georgia 9th: Martha Zoller
  • Illinois 8th: Rep. Joe Walsh
  • Indiana 2nd: Jackie Walorski
  • Indiana 5th: David McIntosh
  • Iowa 4th: Rep. Steve King
  • Kentucky 6th: Andy Barr
  • Louisiana 3rd: Rep. Jeff Landry
  • Missouri 2nd: Ann Wagner
  • Pennsylvania 12th: Keith Rothfus

FreedomWorks PAC Executive Director Max Pappas commented, “Through extensive personal interviews, detailed research of their records, and feedback from activists in their districts, we are confident these candidates will expand the freedom caucus in the House and lead the fight for economic freedom and constitutionally limited government.”

Existing House endorsements for FreedomWorks PAC include Evan Feinberg (Pennsylvania 18th) and Rep. Don Manzullo (Illinois 16th).

I know endorsements aren’t typically a huge deal, but FreedomWorks has been heavily involved in several primary races around the country. They also backed Rep. Tom Graves last year during the special and general elections in the old GA-09.

    This endorsement doesn’t really make a difference, Zoller already has the support of much of the new 9th’s “activist class” of voters, including active members of the TP, 9/12, Freedom Works and even many GOP party members. I do wonder if that’s enough to win the primary since this demographic represents a small slice of potential voters. Martha is great, but I wonder if Doug will do better among other demographics and with voters who don’t already know Martha through her radio show. On the other hand, many casual voters are tuning out all of the political mumbojumbo, and may not even turn out during the oddly scheduled July 31 primary.

    Well, thats my analysis, what do some of PP’s political consultant types think, who has the upper hand in this race?

  2. GOP dawg says:

    This is great for Martha she will make a great member of Congress unlike Collins who is a tax raiser and the Governor’s hand picked candidate. Collins will be a solid vote for the Speaker and for the Governor, Martha will be a solid vote for GA.

  3. debbie0040 says:

    KD, why don’t you ask Lee Hawkins if tea party activists turn out to vote?

    Martha is the best candidate. She is not part of the good ole boy network and we can count on her to go to D.C. and represent We The People..

    Debbie: Martha was put in to fool you and she did……..the establishment new you would not go for Collins so she is their “fake” canidate. Collins and here campaign talk and work together.

    Seeking, that is the funniest joke I have heard in a long time. May want to lay off that crack pipe – look what it did to Whitney..

  6. R.K. Frank says:

    Martha Zoller is getting endorsed by groups like Freedom Works due to the fact that she is a true conservative. Zoller’s conservative principles are epitomized in her legislative agenda – M.A.P. for Prosperity – that will get America back on the right track. The idea that the “establishment” is backing Martha Zoller in order to fool voters is sheer non-sense. Martha Zoller is getting endorsements not only from the “establishment” but also local individuals as well. This proves that she will be an extremely formidable candidate come July 31.
