Trailing 10% among independent voters and having voted with Nancy Pelosi 93% of the time in support of bailouts, failed stimulus, crippling regulations on small-business and the government takeover of health care, Congressman Foster just decided his last resort is to distort Randy's record with a deceitful new television ad.
Many of you have expressed alarm that Congressman Foster would resort to such shameful tactics, and we agree.
The bottom line is Randy has an exceptional record as a proven leader in fighting for lower taxes. But don't take my word for it, here's what Jim Tobin, President of National Taxpayers United of Illinois and Tax Accountability, has to say:
"Randy Hultgren has a proven record of voting for lower taxes, smaller government, and greater accountability... which has earned him our taxpayer's friend award six years in a row."
"For a tax-and-spend liberal like Bill Foster to attack a committed tax-cutter like Randy Hultgren is the height of desperation. Bill Foster has voted for higher taxes at almost every opportunity - that's why he's received a lifetime rating of 14 percent from the National Taxpayers Union. Randy Hultgren has consistently been a champion of Illinois taxpayers and pro-growth policies; for Bill Foster to suggest otherwise is ridiculous."
If you're tired of these deceitful and negative attacks, here's what you can do to help:
1) Come walk precincts with us THIS SATURDAY. Contact our precinct squad leader Scott; you can email him here: firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Volunteer for a 2 hour shift at our Victory Center. Call Rose, our Volunteer Coordinator at 630-609-0016
And, if you can afford it, make another contribution. $100, $50, $25, $10, or $5 will make a big difference. Remember, Congressman Foster has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists and out of state donors; but we're counting on the support of local people here in our community.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
