*Votes are still being tallied in several races. This post will be updated to reflect the results as they become available. 

Eighty-nine percent of all congressional Republicans have made the written commitment to oppose higher taxes. In contrast, ZERO congressional Democrats have made that promise. 

Candidates running for public office like to say they will not raise taxes, but often turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. The idea of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge is simple enough: Make them put their no-new-taxes rhetoric in writing, so the promise is harder to break. 

“With Joe Biden planning to raise taxes by over $4 trillion, it is more important now than ever for candidates nationwide to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Voters are looking for pro-growth and pro-jobs solutions that will strengthen our economy, and I thank these victorious candidates for taking the important first step and signing the Pledge to the American people,” said Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform.  

New candidates sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge regularly. For the most up-to-date information on these races or any other races, please visit the ATR Pledge Database.
