PHOENIX – Jeff Flake, a conservative candidate for the United States Senate, today received the endorsement of U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and the Senate Conservative Fund (SCF), which he founded. In a letter to SCF members, DeMint wrote:
“When it comes to fighting wasteful Washington spending and parochial politics, nobody has done more to advance the cause of freedom than Jeff Flake. Nobody.
“Jeff Flake has fought a lonely battle against earmarks for years, even when it meant standing up to members of his own party who refused to stop pork barrel spending. Without his leadership, House Republicans would not have adopted the earmark moratorium last year.
“Jeff Flake has also authored legislation to devolve the federal highway program back to the states where it belongs. His plan would empower states to build moreroads with less money by removing union wage mandates and unnecessary federal red tape.”
“Senator DeMint is one of the most recognized national conservative leaders and has been a reformer in the U.S. Senate,” said Jeff Flake. “I am grateful to have his support in this race and I look forward to joining his efforts in the Senate to support economic freedom and limited government.”
The SCF is dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate who have the courage to fight for the timeless conservative principles of limited government, strong national defense, and traditional family values.
