ATR congratulates pledge signers in Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota on their primary victories

Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) commends Taxpayer Protection Pledge signatories in Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota for their recent primary victories.

By signing the pledge, these candidates have made a written commitment to taxpayers to oppose and vote against any income tax increase if elected to Congress.

The following primary winners signed the pledge:



New Jersey:

New Mexico:

South Dakota:

Americans for Tax Reform created the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in 1985 to strengthen candidates’ commitments to taxpayers. President Reagan called on all candidates to sign the pledge. He campaigned for and praised candidates who signed the pledge. Today, more than 1,400 federal and state elected officials and candidates are signatories to the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.

There are currently 191 pledge signatories in the U.S. House of Representatives and 42 pledge signatories in the U.S. Senate. 85% of Republicans in Congress have signed the pledge and put their pledge to oppose tax increases in writing, unlike ZERO congressional Democrats who have made this pledge.

“The Taxpayer Protection Pledge creates a barrier to tax increases and enables continued growth-enhancing tax reform. We are excited about these candidates’ decision to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to their constituents.” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

He continued, “With their pledge, we can be confident that they will champion pro-growth policies, protect our economic freedom, and oppose any effort to burden Americans with even higher taxes.”

Unfortunately, the Democratic candidates for this position do not share this commitment. They are trying to reverse course and implement backward tax and spending policies that would only hinder economic growth and take more money out of the hands of taxpayers.

President Biden and Vice President Harris have pledged to raise taxes: They have both repeatedly promised to “eliminate,” “repeal,” “repeal” the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which lowered taxes for all Americans ‘ and ‘to reverse’.

New candidates regularly sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. For the most up-to-date information on this or other races, visit the ATR Pledge Database.
