Rossi Racks Up Endorsements from DeMint, FreedomWorks

Despite all the talk of Republican Washington U.S. Senate Rossi candidate being a "RINO," the "establishment candidate" and "dismissive of the Tea Party," he has just picked up endorsements from a key figure and organization in the Tea Party movement.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), widely considered the champion of limited government, lower taxes, and fiscal restraint in the Senate, has just endorsed Rossi:
"When I met with Dino a couple months ago, he made it clear he was only interested in running if Republicans were serious about saving our country from fiscal collapse," DeMint will say in announcing the endorsement. "I've studied his record and his positions on the key issues, and it's clear that he will stand up to the establishment in both parties."
Rossi also has been endorsed by FreedomWorks, the organization behind the Tea Party Express.

Rossi has earned the PAC's "Champion of Freedom" designation because of his commitment to fiscal responsibility and steadfast defense of the Constitution.

In stark contrast to Senator Murray, Dino Rossi is a steadfast opponent of the "Obamacare" health care takeover and has pledged to work towards its effective repeal. He also opposes the job-killing cap and trade energy tax hike and supports strict fiscal discipline and reigning in the out-of-control spending that continues to plague Washington, D.C.

Rossi has also signed the grassroots "Contract From America": a ten-point platform crafted with the input of tens of thousands of tea party and limited government activists from all across the country. The Contract best represents an agenda that will stay true to the guiding principles of the U.S. Constitution.
