A Match Made... Well, Somewhere

"Citizens for a Sound Economy and Empower America have merged to form FreedomWorks, a grass-roots advocacy and political group to bolster their fight for 'lower taxes, less government and more economic freedom,'" reports Judy Sarasohn. The new group will be co-chaired by Dick Armey, C. Boyden Gray and Jack Kemp, with Matt Kibbe as president. Freedom Works is "intended, in part, to challenge political liberal groups such as MoveOn.org for voters this campaign season" and will engage in "lobbying, political fundraising and political activities, including voter education and get-out-the-vote efforts in key campaigns," according to Armey.
