Jeff Flake for U.S. SenateMonday, April 30, 2012
Posted By: U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, SCF Chairman
I’m proud to announce the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake in the race for U.S. Senate in Arizona. Jeff Flake is one of the strongest conservative leaders in Congress and he needs our help to win this important election.
When it comes to fighting wasteful Washington spending and parochial politics, nobody has done more to advance the cause of freedom than Jeff Flake. Nobody.
Jeff Flake has fought a lonely battle against earmarks for years, even when it meant standing up to members of his own party who refused to stop pork barrel spending. Without his leadership, House Republicans would not have adopted the earmark moratorium last year.
Jeff Flake has also authored legislation to devolve the federal highway program back to the states where it belongs. His plan would empower states to build more roads with less money by removing union wage mandates and unnecessary federal red tape.
We’ve always thought Jeff Flake was an outstanding candidate, but he didn’t need our help … until now.
Flake is locked in a heated primary battle with Wil Cardon, a multi-millionaire who has told reporters that he “won’t be outspent” in this election.
Not only does Wil Cardon oppose the effort to remove earmarks from Congress, but he has actually promised to bring pork projects back to Arizona. Cardon also served on an executive committee of a campaign that fought to pass an $8 billion state sales tax increase.
And just recently, Wil Cardon directly attacked your freedom to engage in the political process. He called for a ban on campaign spending by citizen groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund. He says you should be silenced and that your constitutional right to make your voice heard should be taken away.
This is why we must act now to level the financial playing field.
Jeff Flake is the clear choice in this election and polls indicate that he has a real shot at winning both the primary and general elections. But the one thing that could stand in his way is the lack of resources to get his winning message to voters. His opponent has already spent over $4 million of his own money and he could spend much more.
But with your help, Jeff Flake will win this important race and take his fight for freedom to the U.S. Senate.
Please make a contribution to Jeff Flake’s campaign today. Designate your contribution to his campaign and we’ll pay for processing and handling so he receives 100% of your donation.
Together, we can send another fighter to the U.S. Senate who will help save this country’s future.
