U.S. Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel for Mississippi
Signs the 2014 Contract from America
WASHINGTON D.C. – The Contract from America Foundation and TheTeaParty.net announced today that U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel has signed the bottom-up, crowd-sourced 2014 Contract from America. The original Contract from America earned hundreds of signatures in 2010 and 2012 from conservative candidates across America, including currently serving Senators Cruz (R-TX), Paul (R-UT), Lee (R-UT), Ayotte (R-NH), Coburn (R-OK), Rubio (R-FL), and Scott (R-SC). In all, more than 80 elected Senators, Congressmen and Governors have signed the Contract From America in the past four years.
In the upcoming election cycle, the Contract from America and TheTeaParty.Net will help ensure that hundreds of more candidates agree to and then are held accountable to limited government and Constitutional principles if elected.
This year, the Contract from America and TheTeaPartyNet and their committed activists will work hard to ensure hundreds more politicians of all political parties are held accountable to limited government and Constitutional principles
Ryan Hecker, Founder and President of the Contract from America, added, “We are delighted that U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel has joined the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have already signed the Contract From America. Our nation’s best insurance against sending politicians to Washington only to have them join the Beltway business-as-usual racket is to insist every candidate across America signs this document.”
In signing this bottom-up call for economic conservative and good governance reform, Mr. McDaniel stated: “I’m proud to sign the Contract from America, which restates the principles that made America exceptional, and which Washington sorely needs more of. While the federal government continues to spend money we don’t have, the Contract from America reminds us that America needs strong leaders who will stand and fight for conservative values in D.C., and vocally oppose the wasteful agenda of President Obama and Harry Reid.”
The Contract from America is not a list handed down from on high by old-bull politicians, but one handed up from the true grassroots in this country.
When voting was completed, the top eleven planks in the Contract from America were: (1) Protect the Constitution; (2) Reject the EPA’s Overreach; (3) Demand a Balanced Budget; (4) Enact Fundamental Tax Reform; (5) Restore Fiscal Responsibility and Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington; (6) End Runaway Government Spending; (7) Defund, Repeal, and Replace Government-run Health Care; (8) Pass an All-of-the-Above Energy Policy; (9) Stop the Pork; (10) Protect Americans’ Privacy; and (11) Stop Unconstitutional Executive Branch Power.
