March 31, 2014 Matt Nye 0

CHARLESTOWN, WV – The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce the endorsement of Alex Mooney, as the pro-liberty Republican candidate for Congress in West Virginia’s Second Congressional District.

“Alex Mooney has the drive and determination to represent West Virginia values in the US House of Representatives where he will add West Virginia’s voice to those already standing up for individual liberty, limited government and free enterprise,” said RLCWV Chairman Ed Burgess. “The Mooney campaign is primed and ready to defeat the Democratic nominee – it is working hard every day to win this election.”

“Alex Mooney is the Republican candidate in this race who not only holds fast to our core principles, but exemplifies them,” said RLC National Chairman Matt Nye. “He’s precisely the kind of person West Virginia and the nation needs in Washington, and we expect him to be a true leader if elected to Congress.”

“I am honored to receive the Republican Liberty Caucus’s endorsement,” said Alex Mooney. “The RLC has a history of advocating for true constitutional principles. I stand proudly by my record of fighting for the same principles of limited government, individual liberty, and free enterprise.”

“Our basic liberties are being threatened by the Obama administration’s disastrous big-government policies,” said Mooney. “I will fight to repeal Obamacare completely, end burdensome EPA regulations, and stop out of control tax-and-spend policies so that businesses can thrive and West Virginians can keep more of their hard-earned paychecks. I will lead the charge against leaders in both parties whenever they are unwilling to uphold the Constitution and defend our individual rights.”

Mooney, his wife, Grace, and their children reside in Charles Town, West Virginia. Mooney is taking his campaign to defend liberty to every part of West Virginia’s Second Congressional District.

RLC Endorses Rep. Justin Amash for third term in U.S. House

March 25, 2014 Matt Nye 0

WASHINGTON, D.C. -The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce the endorsement of Congressman Justin Amash for a third term in Michigan’s 3rd congressional district.  This is the third consecutive RLC endorsement for Amash, who serves as Chair of the House Liberty Caucus.

“The RLC is extremely proud of Congressman Amash and thrilled to endorse him yet again,” said RLC Chairman Matt Nye. “Justin Amash embodies everything the RLC stands for and has been a fearless leader in the House fighting tirelessly to reduce the size and scope of government, preserve the privacy rights of citizens and expand individual liberty.”

Representative Amash serves diligently on a number of committees including the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the US Congress Joint Economic Committee.  Amash was removed from the Budget Committee by House leadership in December 2012 after arguing to balance the budget in 10 years instead of 35.

“Removing Amash from that committee was a slap in the face to fiscal conservatives by leadership,” explained Nye.  “Amash provided a fiscally sound solution that is desperately needed, and instead of being rewarded for standing on principle and fighting to protect our children’s futures he was punished for it.”

RLCMI Board Member Dr. Eric Larson echoes Nye’s sentiments. “It is truly a privilege to have Justin Amash as my representative in Congress. He explains every one of his votes in detail which makes it easy to hold him accountable and see that he consistently votes for liberty, free markets, and limited government”, said Larson.  

Amash received his bachelor’s degree with High Honors in Economics from the University of Michigan and his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School.  He lives in Cascade Charter Township with his wife Kara,  a former elementary school teacher. Justin and Kara have three children.

RLC Endorses David Clements for U.S. Senate in New Mexico

March 21, 2014 Matt Nye 0

LAS CRUCES, NM – The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) is pleased to announce the endorsement of  David Clements for United States Senate in New Mexico. Clements is an attorney and former prosecutor from Las Cruces, New Mexico.

“David Clements is the clear choice for New Mexico voters to serve them in the United States Senate,” said RLC National Chairman Matt Nye. “David has spent his career upholding the Constitution and is committed to continuing that dedication in the U.S. Senate. As government spending and overreach climbs to unprecedented levels, we need more elected officials who will stand up and fight for the principles they are sworn to uphold and protect.”

Clements has already battled against a better funded and well known primary opponent. He shocked National political insiders after taking nearly half of the available delegates at the state’s Pre-Primary Convention in March, and continues to build momentum heading into the June 3rd Republican Primary. The winner of the Primary will go on to face Democratic Senator Tom Udall in November’s general election.

“Tom Udall is vulnerable in New Mexico,” said Nye. “He is one of only a few Democrats still advocating for the implementation of Obamacare, and is more concerned with playing partisan politics in Washington than ensuring the rights and liberties of the people of New Mexico.”

New Mexico RLC Chairman, Aaron Henry Diaz, commented, “David is offering an exciting choice to New Mexico voters. Not only is he attracting traditional Republicans with his message of economic freedom, young voters are energized to elect a Senator who will fight for their privacy rights in Washington D.C.

Youth for Clements chapters have begun operations at many of the major universities in New Mexico, showing Clements’ appeal to young voters reaches across the state, and is reminiscent of those efforts levied by Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in their inaugural campaigns for Senate.

David and his wife, Erin, reside in Las Cruces, New Mexico with their 3 year-old son Roland.
