Retired Congressman Ron Paul of Texas has alerted his supporters via email of his decision to support two of his old colleagues and allies of liberty in their current races. Paul Broun, a Congressman from Georgia who is seeking the open Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss. Mark Sanford, a former Congressman and Governor from South Carolina, is seeking to win back his old House seat left open by the appointment of Rep. Tim Scott to Sen. Jim DeMint's seat after he resigned.
Here is the Broun endorsement:
Dear Fellow Conservative,
There are those in Congress who attack our liberties, push for increased government takeovers of private industry, and support out-of-control spending. They have put our nation on the path to fiscal ruin.
These "go along to get along" politicians in Washington are more concerned about re-election than about defending the Constitution from federal government overreach.
Thankfully, there are a few strong defenders of the Constitution who stand firm against out-of-control spending and overreach by politicians in both political parties...
...Dr. Paul Broun of Georgia's 10th District is one of those principled Constitutional conservatives in Congress.
He has worked hard to get federal spending under control by sponsoring a balanced budget amendment and a bill to repeal ObamaCare. He's pushed for over $155 Billion in spending cuts over these last two years alone!
He has also been a strong proponent for oversight of the Federal Reserve and is now sponsoring my "Audit the Fed" bill in Congress. I cannot thank him enough for leading on this issue.
A few weeks ago Congressman Broun launched his campaign for U.S. Senate. He's counting on grassroots Constitutional conservatives like you to rally with me in support of his campaign.
Below is a personal email from Congressman Broun to you about his grassroots campaign for U.S. Senate.
Please take a few moments to read it. Then join his efforts today with your most generous contribution of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.
Congressman Broun has been a staunch ally against out-of-control spending from politicians in both parties, and he will continue that fight in the Senate. We need Paul there! Like me, he's also one of the few remaining veterans of our armed forces serving in Washington.
You and I have an excellent opportunity to send one of our own to the U.S. Senate in 2014, and we must seize it.
Now more than ever, we must elect principled Constitutional conservatives who will reject the deficit-spending, "go along to get along" mentality in the U.S. Senate.
I am confident Paul Broun would join the ranks of principled U.S. Senators like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and my son Rand Paul.
Please read Congressman Broun's enclosed letter. Then join me in support of his grassroots campaign today with your generous gift of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.
If we're going to restore our Constitution and put our nation back on the path to prosperity, we must elect principled conservatives who will fight in Washington.
Paul Broun will continue fighting, and that's why I endorsed his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Georgia.
Before you do anything else today, I ask you to read Congressman Paul Broun's enclosed letter and join his grassroots campaign with your generous contribution of $2,600, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $70, or $35.
Thank you for standing with me and Congressman Broun today.
Congressman Ron Paul, MD
U.S. Congressman (ret)
P.S. Patriotic, constitutional conservatives like you and me have an opportunity to send a proven, principled leader to the U.S. Senate. Please take a few moments to read the enclosed letter from Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia.
Once you've read his letter, please join his grassroots campaign for U.S. Senate with your most generous contribution of $35, $70, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or even the federal maximum of $2,600. Thank you.
