PRLog - Oct. 13, 2011 - LINCOLN, Neb. -- Matt Sakalosky, who received 37 percent of the vote in his Republican primary campaign against Congressman Lee Terry in 2010, announced today his endorsement of Don Stenberg for the United States Senate in Nebraska.
“Don Stenberg is a genuine, lifelong conservative who will stand up to the liberal spenders in Washington and help put our country back on the right track," Sakalosky said.
“Don is the original Nebraska tea party conservative and I strongly encourage all of the voters who supported me in the Republican primary last year to vote for Don Stenberg for the U.S. Senate next spring," Sakalosky said.
Sakalosky’s endorsement adds to Stenberg’s growing support of Nebraska tea party conservatives who are backing him in the contested GOP Senate primary race for the right to take on Senator Ben Nelson. http://www.StenbergForSenate.com
“The Nebraska tea party movement, represented by Matt in 2010, is a growing political force and I’m proud to have the support of many tea party activists. They understand, as I do, that in order to take back our country from the liberals in Washington we need to elect patriots who will cut federal spending, limit the power of the federal government, and will stand firm in the defense of the Second Amendment, in defense of life, and in defense of religious freedom,” Stenberg said.
In addition to Sakalosky, more than sixty conservative activists from across Nebraska have added their support for Stenberg (see attached list). National conservative leaders who have announced their support for Stenberg include United States Senator Mike Lee, FreedomWorks, RedState’s Erick Erickson, conservative talk show host Mark Levin, and conservative Washington PAC, The Madison Project.
“Conservatives from across the nation and here in Nebraska are uniting behind our campaign; Stenberg Conservatives, Tea Party Conservatives, and Reagan Conservatives,”
“We’re building a grassroots army of people across the state to stand up and help us balance the federal budget, defend free-market principles, preserve the Constitution, and defeat big government Democrat Ben Nelson,” Stenberg said.
