WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) today announced its endorsement of 8th Congressional District candidate Patrick Murray, who is seeking election to Congress in Virginia.
“In this time of massive new government spending and bailouts, huge budget deficits, public debt, and inefficient bureaucracies, taxpayers need friends in Washington who will defend their interests, not the special interests,” said Thomas Schatz, Chairman of CCAGW PAC. “That is why CCAGW PAC supports Patrick Murray, who is a bona fide fiscal conservative committed to reducing the size of government by working to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse.”
Patrick Murray is a principled advocate for lower taxes and smaller government. He responded to CCAGW’s questionnaire and signed CCAGW’s “No Pork Pledge.” These documents indicate that he will fight for limited government and lower taxes, and will not request earmarks.
“In the current political and fiscal climate, Congress has engaged in a historically unprecedented level of spending, and is supporting actions that will mortgage our children’s futures. On November 2, 2010 voters in Virginia should support Patrick Murray so that he can fight for fiscally conservative principles that are vital to the taxpayers in the 112th Congress,” 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.
