Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, wrote an op-ed for the Huffington Post regarding North Carolina Senatorial candidate Sean Haugh.
Haugh is open to higher taxes. Not only did Thom Tillis, the Republican nominee, pass one of the most pro-growth tax relief packages ever to come out of any state, he has committed to oppose efforts to raise federal taxes if elected to the U.S. Senate. Haugh, in contrast, refuses to make such a commitment to North Carolina taxpayers.
Americans for Tax Reform’s director of state affairs, Patrick Gleason, was quoted in a Slate article written by Betsy Woodruff about the importance of reelection Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
Patrick Gleason, the director of state affairs at Americans for Tax Reform, said a Walker loss “will scare a lot of governors across the country.”
“That will send a message: Don’t do this, because you very well might not survive,” he said. “If Walker prevails, it’s going to embolden a lot of governors and lawmakers across the country. You’re going to see a lot of governors and lawmakers in other states get spines- or get stronger spines- than they had prior to Walker’s reelection.”
