WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.). With a lifetime score of 96 percent, Rep. Garrett earned the title of “Taxpayer Hero,” a status he has achieved every year of his tenure in the House. In fact, Rep. Garrett’s lifetime rating is 27 percentage points higher than his nearest colleague in the New Jersey delegation. CCAGW PAC bases its endorsements on a candidate’s lifetime score as listed in CCAGW’s 2013 Congressional Ratings. Each candidate endorsed is a “Taxpayer Hero” with a lifetime rating of 80 percent or greater.
“During his tenure, Rep. Garrett has served the citizens of New Jersey with great distinction and has evinced an abiding commitment to fiscal conservatism,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “On top of his prestigious voting record, he has worked with his colleagues to help limit the role of government and has proven to be a tireless warrior for the interests of U.S. taxpayers.”
“Rep. Garrett’s work toward restraining the growth of federal spending is one of the many reasons that I urge voters in the fifth Congressional District to vote for him on November 4 so he can return to Washington, D.C. and continue to protect the interests of both his constituents and all Americans,” concluded Schatz.
CCAGW PAC is affiliated with the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, a 501(c)(4) organization. CCAGW PAC’s mission is to support political candidates who will fight to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in government and represent the best interests of taxpayers.
