Today, Representative Mark Sanford received the endorsement of FreedomWorks PAC, a 6 million member grassroots organization that is committed to promoting free markets and individual liberty.
“Mark Sanford is a champion of pro-freedom legislation, and is one of a handful of grassroots-backed representatives who came to Washington and actually did what they promised to do on the campaign trail,” said FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe.
“I’m honored to receive the backing of FreedomWorks, given our shared commitment to advancing free markets and individual liberty,” said Sanford. “I look forward to continuing to work in Congress, with FreedomWorks and other groups, to advance legislation that cuts spending, shrinks government and protects liberty.”
Representative Sanford is the first South Carolina Representative to receive FreedomWorks’ endorsement in 2014 and was ranked by FreedomWorks as the most conservative member of the South Carolina congressional delegation in 2013.
Since taking office last May, Sanford has received considerable praise for his conservative stands, including receiving the Defender of Economic Freedom award from the Club for Growth for his 95 percent rating in 2013, receiving the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the Chamber of Commerce for his pro-business voting record, scoring 100 percent on the American Conservative Union scorecard, and being called a “cast-iron conservative” by the Washington Post.
