Full statement from the group after the jump:AUSTIN, TX - The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce the endorsement of Marc Scaringi in the Republican primary for Senate in Pennsylvania. Scaringi is an outstanding candidate who represents the principles of limited government and individual liberty to which the Republican Liberty Caucus is dedicated.
"Voters in Pennsylvania are waking up to the reality that our nation cannot survive when both parties promote more government at the cost of our liberty," said RLC National Chairman Dave Nalle. "Marc Scaringi represents the new direction of American politics, with personal integrity, a dedication to the best interests of the people and a firm belief in constitutionally limited government. He is exactly the kind of Senator we need to send to DC to work with our 2010 endorsees like Mike Lee (UT) and Rand Paul (KY)."
"Marc Scaringi is a champion of individual liberty and limited government who will not give ground on fundamental principles and will hold both the Democrats and our own party leadership accountable for their failures," observed RLC Director Bill Westmiller. "He will take up the serious work of rolling back federal spending, ending the cycle of uncontrolled debt and speaking up for the rights and interests of the people of Pennsylvania."
Following on the election of more than two-dozen RLC endorsees to the House and Senate in 2010, the RLC has set a goal of doubling that number in the 2012 election. With a larger core of newly elected, principled representatives in Washington we can swing the debate away from the big government status quo and towards putting the best interests of the people first. This year we are seeing a particularly impressive field of Senatorial candidates and Marc Scaringi will be in very good company when he arrives in DC to put our government back on track next January.
In 1774 John Adams wrote that the revolution had been completed "in the minds of the people" before conflict ever broke out, and we believe that a similar revolution in attitude is taking place in the United States today. The people are no longer content to sit idly by and accept the dictates of an out of control government. We demand the restorations of our liberties and real accountability, and if our demands are not answered we will keep voting out complacent and unresponsive office holders until they get the message.
