Council for Citizens Against Government Waste PAC Endorses Gov. Perry for Re-election

September 27, 2010

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today received the endorsement of Council for Citizens Against Government Waste PAC for re-election in 2010.

“Gov. Perry has been a bright star on the political horizon,” said Tom Schatz, Chairman of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste’s Political Action Committee. “His work on behalf of taxpayers in Texas has been a model of fiscal responsibility. Gov. Perry is the forward edge of a growing army of governors and state officials who have recognized that out-of-control spending is unsustainable and are taking the lead, showing us the way back to fiscal sanity in state budgeting.”

Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) is a private, non-partisan, non-profit organization representing more than one million members and supporters nationwide. CAGW's mission is to eliminate waste, mismanagement, and inefficiency in the federal government.

"I am proud of our state's record of balancing budgets, holding the line on spending and ensuring the good stewardship of taxpayer dollars," said Gov. Perry. "The endorsement of Citizens Against Government Waste PAC is further proof that Texas' approach to governance works, and I am honored to have their support. I will continue working with our state's leadership to maintain our principles of limited government, low taxes and restrained spending so that Texas can continue to be a leader in the national economy and an example for others to follow."
