"Dozens Of GOP Congressional Candidates Refuse To Sign Anti-Tax Pledge"

At least 27 Republican candidates promoted by the National Republican Congressional Committee have refused to sign the anti-tax pledge circulated by Americans for Tax Reform and its President, Grover Norquist, according to the Washington Post. 25 of those candidates are promoted by the NRCC as “‘Young Guns’ and ‘Contenders’ — the top rungs of a program highlighting promising candidates challenging Democrats or running in open seats.” The pledge asks Republican candidates to promise never to raise taxes for any reason, but Congressional Republicans have been wavering on it in increasing numbers over the last several months.
