AFP Action Endorses Flemming Larsen for Congress

LAS VEGAS, NV—Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) today endorsed Flemming Larsen in his bid to represent Nevada’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

AFP Action announced last year the organization would be engaging earlier and in more primaries than ever before. Today’s endorsements put that promise into action. 

AFP Action Senior Advisor Ronnie Najarro released the following statement:

“AFP Action is proud to endorse Flemming Larsen in his bid to represent Nevada’s 1st Congressional District. 

“Nevadans are facing the highest inflation and gas prices in the nation, and Dina Titus has failed to bring down the cost of living for her district. For too long, Titus has been a rubber stamp for the failed ‘Bidenomics’ policies of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden that are causing the soaring inflation facing Nevadans. It’s time for new leadership in Washington that will deliver real results to hardworking Nevadans.  

“Larsen will be a strong voice for school choice, economic prosperity and energy independence in Congress, fighting for policies that will empower the Battle Born State. Now more than ever, Nevada needs leaders who will fight back against the progressive agenda of Washington and drive down costs to make the American Dream more achievable.

“AFP Action intends to put the full weight of our grassroots capabilities behind Larsen’s candidacy to ensure he’s elected to the House of Representatives come November.”

AFP Action Endorses Chris Balkema and Regan Deering for State Legislature

SPRINGFIELD, IL —Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) today endorsed Chris Balkema and Regan Deering in their bids for the Illinois State Senate and State House of Representatives. Balkema is in Illinois’ 53rd Senate District, and Deering is in Illinois’ 88th House District.

AFP Action announced last year the organization would be engaging earlier and in more primaries than ever before. Today’s endorsements put that promise into action. 

AFP Action Senior Advisor Jason Heffley released the following statement:

Chris Balkema has spent the past 13 years on the Grundy County Board, where he worked to relieve the impacts of rising inflation and high living costs facing Illinois families. A former businessman, Chris deeply understands the importance of a thriving, bottom-up economy – and has the experience to enact real reform in Springfield.

Regan Deering has a proven track record of serving her and fighting to create a more prosperous state. Illinoisans are in some of the toughest economic times since the 2008 recession – and Deering has vowed to be an advocate in the legislature to reign in Springfield’s reckless spending.

“AFP Action’s strong grassroots organization throughout the state will be focused on making Chris Balkema and Regan Deering the Land of Lincoln’s newest legislators come November.”

NEW ADS: AFP Action Ads Urge Montanans to Turn the Page on Tester, Support Sheehy for U.S. Senate

MISSOULA, MT – Today, AFP Action released a new seven-figure spend ad campaign highlighting Jon Tester’s lockstep voting record with Joe Biden and his failure to stand up for Montanans. In contrast, additional AFP Action ads highlight Tim Sheehy as a political outsider who will fight to secure the southern border, battle inflation, and unleash American energy abundance.

Jon Tester has spent 18 years in the Senate – and now votes with President Biden 91% of the time, proving time and again he’ll choose his party bosses over Montanans. Among other failures for the state, Tester was the deciding vote to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline in the Senate, costing the state countless well-paying jobs.

 The ads urge voters to move past Senator Tester, saying, “We must do better. Turn the page on Senator Jon Tester.”

Montanans are facing the greatest economic uncertainty since the great recession of 2008. Rising inflation has led to rising living costs, making life more and more unaffordable. Tester has spent nearly 20 years in the Senate and hasn’t delivered for Big Sky Country. In contrast, Sheehy is a decorated veteran and creator of thousands of jobs in the state. Montana deserves a senator as independent as the state – and a political outsider like Tim Sheehy is the best candidate to defeat Jon Tester this November.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Jesse Ramos released the following statement:

“These ads signify AFP Action’s dedication to defeating Senator Tester this November – Tester has been a rubber stamp for his party bosses for too long. It’s time for Montana to turn the page on Tester like he’s turned his back on us time and again. Montana can’t afford six more years of the disastrous Tester-Biden agenda.

“That’s why AFP Action is backing conservative outsider Tim Sheehy for U.S. Senate. Sheehy will fight for Montana just like he fought or our country. His commitment to securing the border, combatting inflation, reining in spending, and tapping America’s limitless energy potential represents a new chapter for Montana and stands in stark contrast to the far-left progressive agenda that Tester has fully embraced.”

AFP Action Endorses Jeff Hurd and State Rep. Gabe Evans for Congress

DENVER, CO —Americans for Prosperity Action (AFP Action) today endorsed Jeff Hurd and State Representative Gabe Evans in their bids for the U.S. House of Representatives. Hurd is in Colorado’s 3rd congressional district, and Rep. Evans is in Colorado’s new 8th congressional district.

AFP Action announced last year the organization would be engaging earlier and in more primaries than ever before. Today’s endorsements put that promise into action.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Jesse Mallory released the following statement:

“A first-time candidate who deeply understands his community, AFP Action believes Jeff Hurd to be the candidate that should take over the newly open 3rd congressional district. Hurd acknowledges the need to combat inflation and cost-of-living increases in Colorado and emphasizes the need for a secure southern border with increased technology, infrastructure, and boots on the ground.

Representative Gabe Evans has a track record of serving his community – whether in the State House or as a former police officer. Coloradans are facing rate increase upon tax increase – and Rep. Evans has vowed to be an advocate in Congress to reign in Washington’s reckless spending and stop the attempts to stifle the American energy industry. Rep. Evans is the best candidate to defeat Yadira Caraveo in a general election.

“AFP Action’s strong grassroots organization throughout the state will be focused on making Jeff Hurd and Rep. Gabe Evans Colorado’s newest congressmen come November.”
