WASHINGTON, DC (PR) - The Contract from America Foundation and announced today that U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Paul Broun from the state of Georgia signed the bottom-up, crowd-sourced 2014 Contract from America. The original Contract from America earned hundreds of signatures in 2010 and 2012 from conservative candidates across America, including currently serving Senators Cruz (R-TX), Paul (R-UT), Lee (R-UT), Ayotte (R-NH), Coburn (R-OK), Rubio (R-FL), and Scott (R-SC). In all, more than 80 elected Senators, Congressmen and Governors have signed the Contract From America in the past four years.

In the upcoming election cycle, the Contract from America and will help ensure that hundreds of more candidates agree to and then are held accountable to limited government and Constitutional principles if elected.

This year, the Contract from America and and their committed activists will work hard to ensure hundreds more politicians of all political parties are held accountable to limited government and Constitutional principles.

Ryan Hecker, Founder and President of the Contract from America, added, "We are delighted that Dr. Broun has joined the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have already signed the Contract From America. Our nation's best insurance against sending politicians to Washington only to have them join the Beltway business-as-usual racket is to insist every candidate across America signs this document."

In signing this bottom-up call for economic conservative and good governance reform, Dr. Broun stated: "I'm proud to sign the Contract from America, which is a restatement of the principles and values that have made America exceptional for centuries and that are needed in Washington today. At a time when Washington is spending more than we can afford and growing the size of government, the Contract from America is a reminder that Americans deserve leaders who will be a check and balance on the direction the President and Congress are pursuing."

The Contract from America is not a list handed down from on high by old-bull politicians, but one handed up from the true grassroots in this country.
