October 3, 2018

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of Reps. Jason Lewis (R-Minn.) and Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.) for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.

CCAGW PAC based its endorsements of incumbents on a candidate’s lifetime score as listed in CCAGW’s 2017 Congressional Ratings.

Rep. Lewis has earned a 91 percent lifetime rating since his election in 2016 and Rep. Paulsen has earned an 82 percent lifetime rating since his election in 2008, making both “Taxpayer Heroes.”

“During their tenures in the House, Reps. Lewis and Paulsen have been strong and reliable votes to curb government waste and reform Washington,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “They worked with their colleagues to enact historic tax cuts, support deregulation, and help ignite America’s economic boom. I urge Minnesota voters to re-elect them to Congress.”

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.
