National Board Endorses Dan Bongino for Congress
Melbourne, Florida: The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) today endorsed Dan Bongino in his race for the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida's 19th Congressional District.
Dan Bongino is a former Secret Service Agent with the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. Mr. Bongino resigned from the Secret Service in protest over President Obama's disregard for the Constitution.
A New York Times Best-Selling Author, Mr. Bongino ran for Congress in 2014 in Maryland, narrowly losing to incumbent Rep. John Delaney. He currently writes for Conservative Review and hosts his own podcast, "The Renegade Republican".
"Dan Bongino exemplifies what it means to live the American Dream. He doesn't just talk the talk but walks the walk. Congress desperately needs a change in leadership. We know Dan won't back down from the tough fights that wait ahead on the House floor. That is why the RLC is rallying behind him" said Chairman Matt Nye.
Bongino has been endorsed by Senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul. He lives in southwest Florida with his wife Paula and their two daughters. Mr. Bongino's respected within the liberty community not just for his love of liberty, but for his character and integrity.
Dan Bongino proclaimed, "I'm honored and humbled to accept the endorsement of the Republican Liberty Caucus. They have been on the front lines in the battle for individual liberty and they understand the dangers of continuing down the reckless path of the past 7 years."
We will be working to pass the following pieces of legislation until the end of the 114th session of Congress. After the current session is over we'll begin a new agenda and a more extensive one fit to last the normal lifespan of a congressional session.
Contact your representatives and ask that they cosponsor the legislation, and contact the committee members who oversee each bill. It's imperative that we voice our support of these bills to our representatives, so contact them as often as you can. Please remember to be courteous .

The Liberty Index has three different ratings for members: Personal Liberty, Economic Liberty and an average score of the two which is based upon roll call votes. The Index we're releasing is for the year of 2015 which is half of the 114th Congress. Hold your representatives' feet to the fire with the truth by using the Liberty Index as your go-to congressional scorecard.
