“During their tenures in the Senate and House, Sen. Kennedy, Reps. Graves, Higgins, Johnson, and Letlow, and Whip Scalise have been strong and reliable votes to curb government waste and reform Washington,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “On top of their impressive voting records, they fought for increased accountability and transparency while opposing efforts to massively increase federal spending and adopt burdensome new regulations. I urge their constituents to re-elect them to Congress.”
