FreedomWorks not planning to endorse Romney

“FreedomWorks has not made it a practice to endorse for presidential elections, and I don’t expect we’ll deviate from tradition this year,” FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe told The Daily Caller. “Our focus elsewhere is always on electing more-conservative candidates.”

This prohibition on endorsing presidential candidates didn’t prevent FreedomWorks from attacking Romney during the GOP primary. In fact, one of the tea party organization’s top goals was to prevent Romney from becoming the nominee. In March, as it became increasingly clear Romney would win the nomination, FreedomWorks officially dropped its strident opposition to him…

Asked if FreedomWorks intended to support Hatch if he survives his primary challenge in Utah to the FreedomWorks-backed Dan Liljenquist, Kibbe said that Hatch can only win by tacking rightward.
