Rand Paul backs primary challenge to Rep. Tim Murphy

By , 02/28/12

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has endorsed Tea Party challenger Evan Feinberg (R), a former staffer, in his race against longtime Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.).

Paul is a favorite of Tea Party supporters and conservatives. His endorsement of Feinberg comes on the heels of the backing of another prominent conservative and former Feinberg employer: Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.).

Both men told The Hill in December that they might endorse Feinberg.

Paul described Feinberg as "a tireless advocate for limited government and individual liberty."

Have you gotten your Don Stenberg yard sign yet?

By Josh Eboch, 02/24/12

There is only one candidate in the Nebraska Senate race that conservatives can trust to fight for freedom in Washington, and his name is Don Stenberg. Others might talk a good game, but those are just empty words on the campaign trail.

Jon Bruning, in particular, wants to hide from his own record of support for affirmative action and government health care by speaking the language of conservatives and hoping they won't check the facts. But we know who Jon Bruning is, and he's not the constitutional conservative Nebraska deserves.

FreedomWorks Headed to West Texas

By Josh Eboch, 02/23/12

FreedomWorks for America is headed to West Texas, and we want to see you there. Starting Saturday, February 25th, our grassroots team will be conducting training events in Abilene, Midland-Odessa and San Angelo that you won’t want to miss.

The candidate who wasn't there

By Josh Eboch, 02/16/12

Last weekend, the FreedomWorks for America grassroots team attended a candidate forum hosted by the Republican Liberty Caucus in Kearney, Nebraska. It was a great chance for voters and the media to hear straight from the candidates themselves about how they hope to serve Nebraskans if elected.

Unfortunately, one candidate, Attorney General Jon Bruning, skipped the event rather than have to face voters and answer tough questions about his record. 

And there are a lot of questions.

Hatch Cosponsored the Individual Mandate

By Russ Walker, 02/15/12

If you watch television, listen to the radio, or read your mail you’ve probably already gotten the fairytale being told by Orrin Hatch: he’s “a conservative who’ll fight Big Government, repeal health care’s individual mandate, and pass a Balanced Budget Amendment”—all things he apparently couldn’t do after 36 years in Washington.
