Floridians have Marco Rubio to thank for having the guts to stand up to Charlie Crist when he tried to impose a left-wing, cap-and-trade scheme on the state of Florida.
Saint Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
Conservatives of America today officially endorsed Marco Rubio for the U.S. Senate in Florida.
"Given the climate in Washington, D.C, it is more important now than ever to focus on a return to sanity. The pendulum has swung too far to the left and we need Senators that will restore a sense of responsibility and accountability to the American people. Just as Barry Goldwater did in 1964, and Ronald Reagan in 1980, the U.S. Senate races in Florida and Arizona this year will define the future of conservatism in America,” said Bill Murphy, Founder of Conservatives of America.
In making the endorsement, Conservatives of America noted that Marco Rubio has been a solid conservative voice for Florida over the years, including in his leadership role as Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. “Marco Rubio has not just talked the talk, he has truly walked the walk and has been a leader in fighting for conservative principles,” said Bill Murphy. In the Florida House, Rubio led the fight for a major overhaul of the Florida tax system that would have eliminated all property taxes on primary residences, and fought for gun-owner rights, as well as the rights of the Unborn. Most significantly, though, “Floridians have Marco Rubio to thank for having the guts to stand up to Charlie Crist when he tried to impose a left-wing, cap-and-trade scheme on the state of Florida,” Murphy noted. In short, Marco Rubio will not drink the “Obama Kool-Aid,” but instead will have the backbone to stand up and fight the Obama Administration’s march to Socialism in America.
Conservatives of America is a national, grassroots conservative organization dedicated to reducing the size of government, lowering taxes, promoting fiscal sanity, protecting the Right to Life for the Unborn, preserving the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, having a strong national defense, staying on the offense in the “War on Terror,” and securing America’s borders. Recently, Conservatives of America has emerged as America’s leading conservative organization dedicated to training grassroots conservative activists and the conservative movement. The organization also recently launched a petition calling for the repeal of the recent healthcare reform legislation.
