On top of her prestigious voting record, she has worked with her colleagues to restrain the growth of federal spending to help make government more accountable and transparent to taxpayers. Rep. Blackburn's commitment to fiscal common sense and government accountability is one of the many reasons that I urge voters in Tennessee's 7th Congressional District to vote for her on November 4 so she can return to Washington, D.C. and continue to protect the interests of both her constituents and all Americans."
