Grover Norquist Endorses Marco Rubio in Senate Primary
Grover Norquist, one of the most prominent pro-taxpayer leaders in the country and a board member of the National Rifle Association, today announced his endorsement of Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate.
“I have followed Marco Rubio’s career very closely and am proud to support him in his bid for U.S. Senate,” said Norquist. “In closely examining his record, I remain convinced he has been the most courageous, pro-taxpayer legislative leader in the country and will continue this path in the U.S. Senate."
“In fact, Marco Rubio’s vigorous advocacy of his property tax reform plan remains a shining example of his willingness to stand up for pro-taxpayer policies, even in the face of opponents committed to the status quo," said Norquist. "Just as Marco fought for revolutionary tax reform, he also held the line on spending during challenging budget years when others were clamoring for more revenues and more ways to fund government."
Norquist currently serves as president of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), a coalition of taxpayer groups, individuals and businesses opposed to higher taxes at the federal, state and local levels. He also serves on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association of America, the American Conservative Union and is the author of “Leave Us Alone – Getting the Government’s Hands Off Our Money, Our Guns, Our Lives.”
Welcoming Norquist’s endorsement, Rubio said, “Grover Norquist is the nation’s leading pro-taxpayer grassroots leader, and I am honored to have his support. For decades, his advice and counsel have shaped tax policies that have unleashed America’s entrepreneurial spirit and made us the most dynamic economy in the world."
