Pro-Liberty Republican Caucus Announces More Endorsements
September 13, 2011
Today, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Minnesota, a state affiliate of the Republican Liberty Caucus, announced endorsements for five members of the state Legislature who demonstrated their commitment to fiscal responsibility and smaller, more efficient government.
"These freshmen members showed strength and poise as they faced unbelievable pressure to spend more money than the state would take in this biennium," said state RLC Chair Norann Dillon. "It was not a popular position to take in the face of a state shutdown, but doing what's right and doing what's easy are not always the same thing."
The members endorsed by the Caucus are Al DeKruif, Senate District 25; Roger Chamberlain, Senate District 53; Carolyn McElfatrick, House District 3B; Mary Franson, House District 11B; and Kelby Woodard, House District 25B.
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.
