Republican Liberty Caucus Endorses Patrick Flynn in U.S. Senate Race
Pat Flynn Can Play a Big Role in Restoring Popular and Constitutional Government for the People of Nebraska
AUSTIN, TX/CRETE, NE – The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus, along with the State Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Nebraska, is pleased to announce the endorsement of Pat Flynn in the Republican primary for Nebraska’s U.S. Senate race. Flynn is an outstanding candidate who represents the principles of limited government and individual liberty to which the Republican Liberty Caucus is dedicated. “Voters in Nebraska are starting to realize that our nation cannot survive when both parties promote more government at the cost of our liberties,” said RLC National Chairman Dave Nalle. “Pat Flynn represents the new direction of American politics, with personal integrity, a dedication to the best interests of the people and a firm belief in constitutionally limited government. He is exactly the kind of Senator we need to send to DC to put our government back on track.”
“Although all four of the major Republican candidates for the Senate claim to be solidly conservative, and that they will be true to the principles of our Constitution, Pat Flynn’s lack of political experience was appealing for our membership. The fact that he has never served in political office before makes us believe that, if elected, he will go to Washington with the can-do attitude of the successful business man he is, rather than playing political games,” said RLC Nebraska Chair, Laura Ebke. “We seem to get largely the same results every time we elect someone who has a long history of serving in political office, so maybe it’s time to start electing people who haven’t been tainted by the experience of having been elected. It’s not that the other candidates are bad—it’s merely that they’ve all been elected and re-elected to state level offices, and have served for at least 8 years—something which makes them inherently a part of the political culture which continues to spend our country into ever more debt,” added Ebke.
The Republican Liberty caucus endorsed over 2 dozen members of the U.S. House and Senate who were elected in 2010. Most notable, Senators Mike Lee of Utah, and Rand Paul of Kentucky, represent the non-career politician type of candidate that the RLC believes is important at this point in our history. “Pat Flynn would be a valuable addition to the Senate, and could be depended upon to remain faithful to the Constitution. Anyone who is willing to sell his business—as Pat has—in order to run for the Senate certainly must have the fortitude to stand strong on principle, and resist the temptations of the interest groups who try to have every senator’s ear,” said Ebke.
