Pro-Liberty Caucus Announces Candidate Endorsements Candidates will be advocates for sensible, constitutional government FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 15, 2012 CONTACT: Norann Dillon, 763-516-1175 or firstname.lastname@example.org SAINT PAUL, MINNESOTA — Today, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Minnesota [rlcmn.org] announced endorsements for 13 Legislative candidates who will work for fiscal responsibility, individual liberty, and reduced size in government. "State government spending has averaged a 10% growth rate since the 1960s. Minnesotans have felt the drain when state government spends money we don't have. We need fiscal conservatives who will build on the Republican-led legislature's initial work to set the state's spending priorities within the realities of revenue," said state RLC Chair Norann Dillon. The Caucus endorsed nine incumbents: Rep. Mary Franson, House District 8B; Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, House District 18B; Rep. Steve Drazkowski, House District 21B; Rep. Peggy Scott, House District 35B; Sen. Roger Chamberlain, Senate District 38; Rep. Kathy Lohmer, House District 39B; Rep. Doug Wardlow, House District 51B; Sen. Ted Daley, Senate District 51; and Sen. Dave Thompson, Senate District 58. Non-incumbents endorsed by the Caucus are David FitzSimmons, House District 30B; Dale Helm, House District 41A; Paul Tuschy, House District 52B; and Mark Fotsch, House District 66A. "These candidates know that government grows at the expense of individuals and businesses. It's not only good fiscal policy to keep state spending in check. It also protects and preserves our freedoms here in the North Star State," concluded Andrew Noble, Co-Chair of the Candidate Committee. Founded in 1991, the Republican Liberty Caucus works to advance the principles of individual rights, limited government and free enterprise within the Republican Party. The Minnesota Chapter was chartered in 2003. - 30 -
