Denver Riggleman pledges to join House Freedom Caucus

Denver RigglemanNelson County businessman Denver Riggleman announced Friday that he will join the House Freedom Caucus if nominated by the Fifth Congressional District Republican Committee.

“Today, I am pledging that I will join the House Freedom Caucus. The House Freedom Caucus is not about opportunism, or manipulating people and process for a specific end. The House Freedom Caucus is about always supporting liberty, transparency, and resisting any control measures foisted on constituents by outside actors.

I am running for Congress to represent the 5th District. I will listen to the people of the 5thDistrict. If the 5th District and I differ on an issue, unless it violates my core principles of freedom and transparency, I will yield to the will of the 5th District… because that is the next Congressman’s job. I am not going up there to join “the team.”

Will all contenders make the same pledge?”
