Not to be outdone, Rubio signs 'Pledge' too

Marco Rubio also signed the American for Tax Reform pledge against taxes today, joining Republican U.S. Senate rival Charlie Crist. (previous blog here)

“Americans need leaders committed to fiscal responsibility and pro-growth economic policies. Therefore, I commend Mr. Rubio for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Signing and abiding by the Pledge is a clear indication of a candidate’s dedication to fiscal conservatism.” Grover Norquist, president of ATR, said in a statement today.

“I applaud him for his leadership and dedication to the taxpayers of Florida. I strongly encourage every candidate for federal and state elective office to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge,” Norquist continued.
