WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of two members of the Idaho congressional delegation for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, respectively: Rep. Raúl Labrador (R) and Sen. Jim Risch (R). CCAGW PAC based its endorsements on each candidate’s score in CCAGW’s 2013 Congressional Ratings. Each of these candidates is a “Taxpayer Hero” with a lifetime rating of 90 percent or greater.
With a score of 95 percent, Sen. Risch has the highest lifetime rating of the Idaho delegation. Sen. Risch scored a perfect 100 percent in CCAGW’s 2010 Congressional Ratings, earning him the coveted title of “Taxpayer Super Hero.” Rep. Labrador has a lifetime rating of 91 percent. If re-elected, Rep. Labrador would be serving his third term, and Sen. Risch would be serving his second.
“The courageous actions of both of these public servants has helped cut wasteful spending, reduce taxes, and make government more accountable and transparent to taxpayers,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “I urge Idahoans to vote for Rep. Labrador and Sen. Risch on November 4 so they can return to Washington, D.C. and continue to protect the interests of both their constituents and all Americans.”
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.
