BIPAC Endorses Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO) in U.S. Senate Race
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 16, 2010 (Washington, D.C.) – The Business-Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC) announced today it has endorsed Roy Blunt for U.S. Senate. Currently, Blunt represents the 7th Congressional District of Missouri.
'We're helping Representative Boy Blunt in his Senate race because we're confident he has the skills to enact legislation. No matter what the odds or the eventual number count in the Senate, Roy Blunt has the temperament and the persistence to find working solutions to create jobs and help the nation's and Missouri's economies prosper,' said Gregory S. Casey, President and CEO of BIPAC. 'Success in the next Senate won't come from ideologues but from undaunted doers who have the ability to work with colleagues to make the system work for us.'
Roy Blunt is in his 7th term as U.S. Representative and serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee. He is also a former state legislator and educator with strong farming roots. Casey said his experience allows him to work closely on a wide range of issues affecting Missouri that span the business spectrum.
'Great ideas are fine on the campaign trail, but what counts is getting something done in a body with complicated rules and power blocs designed to thwart solutions. Roy Blunt can do just that, and we endorse him for U.S. Senate,' said Casey.
BIPAC, a non-partisan organization, has identified pro-prosperity candidates for 47 years. BIPAC does not lobby but assists thousands of businesses and their organizations to find and elect pro-prosperity candidates at the state and federal level. It is also considered the 'gold standard' for political analysis. BIPAC's tradition of backing non-incumbents --- regardless of party --- who have the ability to become effective leaders once elected to Congress, sets it apart from other business organizations. Additionally, BIPAC provides a wide range of tools and strategies for elections and issue advocacy with active affiliates in more than 40 states.
