WASHINGTON, DC – The national board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has voted unanimously to endorse Thomas Massie in his reelection bid to the U.S. House of Representatives from Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District. Congressman Massie is a favorite of libertarian leaning voters who appreciate his efforts to protect gun rights and civil liberties, and for taking a leadership role in the removal of Speaker John Boehner.
“Congressman Massie has been willing to fight the establishment on behalf of the interests of the American people. He is one of the leading lights in Congress, willing to buck the herd and vote alone when individual liberty is at stake,” said RLC National Chair Matt Nye. “We greatly respect the Congressman and it is our honor to endorse him.”
Massie is a graduate of MIT, where he and his wife co-founded a company from their dorm room. The couple later successfully sold the company. Massie was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2012 and is seeking his third term.
”I am honored to be endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus,” said Rep Massie. “Six years ago, when I first ran for local office in my county, the Republican Liberty Caucus endorsed me. No other organization pays as much attention to candidates and elections at all levels as the Republican Liberty Caucus does. Beginning with my first election to county office and continuing in Congress, I’ve been fighting for constitutionally limited government, individual liberty, and economic freedom. I look forward to returning to the U.S. House of Representatives to continue the fight for liberty.”
