Texas Senate Candidate Glenn Addison Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge


Posted by Paul Blair on Thursday, December 1st, 2011, 5:35 PM PERMALINK


WASHINGTON, DC—Funeral home owner Glenn Addison has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in his race for Texas’s U.S. Senate seat. The Pledge, sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), commits signers to “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates."

ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, 41 U.S. Senators and 238 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, thirteen governors and over 1,200 state legislators have signed the Pledge.

“I want to congratulate Mr. Addison for taking the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. The American people clearly showed their displeasure in November with the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington. They want real solutions that create jobs and cut government spending,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.

“By signing the Pledge, Glenn Addison demonstrates that he understands the problems of hard-working taxpayers nationwide, but especially the taxpayers of Texas.”

“I challenge all candidates for federal office to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” Norquist continued.

North Carolina Congressional Candidate Richard Hudson Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge


Posted by Paul Blair on Tuesday, November 8th, 2011, 2:39 PM PERMALINK


Two candidates have now signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in their bid to secure the Republican nomination and challenge North Carolina’s 8th Congressional district incumbent Congressman Kissell (D).  Ex-Iredell County Commissioner Scott Keadle and business consultant Richard Hudson have both taken the Pledge.

Other announced candidates for the Republican nomination include Weddington Town Councilman Dan Barry, Ex-Winston-Salem City Councilman Vernon Robinson, and surgeon John Whitley.

According to the Cook Political Report, because of 2012 redistricting, this district is rated as lean Republican. Although Rep. Kissell won his 2010 race with 53% of the vote, many of the heavily democratic neighborhoods have been drawn out of the district. The incumbent Kissell will face a tough reelection in a district drawn to favor Republicans. 

By signing the Pledge, Hudson commits to the taxpayers of North Carolina that he will “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.”

Three Wisconsin Senate Candidates Sign Taxpayer Protection Pledge


Posted by Paul Blair on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011, 2:38 PM PERMALINK


Three candidates have signed the the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in their bid for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Herb Kohl: Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, State Sen. Frank Lasee, and former Congressman Mark Neumann.  

Other announced candidates for the Republican nomination include State Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, and retired delivery driver John Schiess. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin and social services worker Gregory Paules are the only candidates vying for the Democrat nomination at this point.

Last year Republicans scored big wins in Wisconsin. Republican Sen. Ron Johnson defeated four term incumbent Democrat Sen. Russ Feingold by a margin of 52% to 47%. Gov. Scott Walker also similarly defeated Democrat Tom Barrett by a margin of 52% to 46%. Republicans didn't only win state-wide elections; they also reversed control of both houses of the state legislature. The success of Republicans in Wisconsin in 2010 is why 2012's Wisconsin Senate race is rated as a toss up by Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball and the Cook Political Report.

By signing the Pledge, Thompson, Lasee, and Neumann commit to the taxpayers of Wisconsin that they will “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.”
