DUBUQUE, IA – Today Rod Blum, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Iowa’s 1st District, announced the endorsement of Young Americans for Liberty’s Liberty Action Fund PAC.
“We are behind Rod 100%,” said Jeff Frazee, Executive Director of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). “He is passionate about restoring opportunities for young people and will fight to regain the liberties that excite the new generation of voters. Rod is also the only Republican who can win the general election: his campaign has done the hard work of building a first-rate grassroots organization and fundraising operation that can go toe to toe with the Democrats in the fall.”
“Our campaign has worked hard to bring more young people into the Republican Party, and I believe that this endorsement is a testimony to the success we’ve had,” added Blum. “I’m grateful to have YAL’s support in this race and look forward to working with their members in the 1st District to counter the war on opportunity being waged by our federal government.”
YAL is the largest, most active, and fastest-growing pro-liberty organization on America’s college campuses, with more than 500 YAL chapters and 162,000 youth activists nationwide. For more information please visitwww.YALiberty.org.
