Americans for Prosperity Action to Voters: Re-elect Trey Hollingsworth

Press Release

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Americans for Prosperity Action℠ (AFP Action) on Thursday announced its support for U.S. Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (IN-9) in his re-election bid after identifying the freshman congressman as a champion of policies critical to removing barriers to opportunity and helping people improve their lives. AFP Action will urge Hoosiers to support Hollingsworth based on his active leadership on top policy priorities with grassroots engagement and targeted digital ads.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Justin Stevens issued the following statement:

“Rep. Trey Hollingsworth has proven to be a rare lawmaker Hoosiers can trust to have their back when it’s unpopular or easier to do otherwise. Trey reaffirmed his commitment to fiscal sanity and stood in contrast to most of Indiana’s congressional delegation when he voted against the bloated $1.3 trillion spending bill in March and the $854 billion spending bill in September. Lawmakers such as Rep. Hollingsworth, who deliver on promises and put principles over politics, are key to advancing the bold reforms that will break down barriers to opportunity and give Hoosier communities and businesses the best opportunity to flourish.”

U.S. Rep. Trey Hollingsworth has consistently led on policies that make it easier for Hoosiers to thrive. He supported the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that increased take-home pay for millions of Americans and he has been an outspoken opponent of the policy and fiscal nightmare that is single-payer health care. Rep. Hollingsworth was also one of just two members of Indiana’s congressional delegation to reject the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill in March that pushed total Washington spending above $4 trillion annually for the first time. In September, Rep. Hollingsworth was again just one of two members of the delegation to reject H.R. 6157, another huge appropriations bill that kept spending at unsustainable levels.

AFP Action’s support for Rep. Trey Hollingsworth was announced alongside its support for Tom Emmer (MN-06), Mia Love (UT-04), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Mark Meadows (NC-11), and Phil Roe (TN-01). The group already has efforts underway to support Rep. Rod Blum (IA-1), Rep. Dave Brat (VA-7), Rep. Ted Budd (NC-13), Rep. Steve Chabot (OH-1), Rep. Will Hurd (TX-23), Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-3), Rep. Peter Roskam (IL-6), and David Young (IA-3).
