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.
