WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of two Iowa candidates, Reps. Rod Blum (R-Iowa) and David Young (R-Iowa), for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.
CCAGW PAC based its endorsements on each candidate’s lifetime score as listed in CCAGW’s 2015 Congressional Ratings.
Both representatives have maintained impressive lifetime ratings. Rep. Blum has a lifetime rating of 90 percent and Rep. Young has a lifetime rating of 86 percent, making each a “Taxpayer Hero.” In addition, Iowa’s senior senator, Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) earned the distinction of “Taxpayer Super Hero” in 2015 by scoring a perfect 100 percent.
“During their tenures in the House, these members of Congress have served the citizens of Iowa with great distinction,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “On top of their prestigious voting records, they worked with their colleagues to restrain the growth of federal spending and to help make government more accountable and transparent to taxpayers.”
“Their abiding commitment to fiscal conservatism is one of the many reasons that I urge Iowans to vote for Reps. Blum and Young on November 8, so that they can continue to hold the line with Sen. Grassley on Washington’s big-spending agenda and restore accountability and fiscal discipline to the nation’s capital,” 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.
