Republican Business Council endorses Cliff Stearns

Another endorsement in the race to become chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee: The Republican Business Council is backing Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., touting his conservative credentials and even his home state:

Of all the candidates for Chair of this important Energy and Commerce Committee, there is only one candidate who has actually met a payroll, signed the front of checks for employees and created jobs in the marketplace. Cliff Stearns started a business from scratch, struggled hard to make it succeed, raised his family and served his country as a captain in the US Air Force. He has experienced the American Dream.

Earlier this year Cliff Stearns organized an event for the NRCC in our hometown of Ocala. Leader Boehner was our honored guest. Unemployment was 14.5 percent and yet we raised $90,000 to help win the Majority in the House.

We also support Cliff Stearns because of his consistant conservative voting record. Cliff has a 95% rating from the American Conservative Union.
