CCAGW PAC Endorses Four Louisiana House Candidates and Sen. Bill Cassidy

Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of Reps. Garret Graves (R-La.), Clay Higgins (R-La.), Mike Johnson (R-La.), and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) for re-election to the House of Representatives, and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) for re-election to the Senate.

CCAGW PAC based its endorsements on the candidates’ lifetime score in CCAGW’s 2019 Congressional Ratings.

Based on their exemplary lifetime ratings, all five representatives have earned lifetime “Taxpayer Hero” awards. Rep. Mike Johnson has a lifetime rating of 95 percent. Reps. Higgins has a lifetime rating of 93 percent as does Rep. Scalise, who also had a perfect 100 percent “Taxpayer Super Hero” rating in 2017. Reps. Graves has a lifetime rating of 90 percent. Sen. Cassidy has a lifetime rating of 81 percent, including a perfect 100 percent “Taxpayer Super Hero” rating in 2015.

“During their tenures in the House and Senate, Reps. Graves, Higgins, Johnson, and Scalise, and Sen. Cassidy have been strong and reliable votes to curb government waste and reform Washington,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “On top of their impressive voting records, they worked with their colleagues to enact and retain historic tax cuts, support deregulation, and help ignite America’s economic boom. I urge the constituents of the five representatives to re-elect them to the House and all Louisianans to re-elect Sen. Cassidy to the Senate.”

CCAGW PAC is affiliated with the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, a 501(c)(4) organization. CCAGW PAC’s mission is to support political candidates who will fight to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in government and represent the best interests of taxpayers.

EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy shares moving garden tribute to late mum, who died when she was 19

EASTENDERS star Natalie Cassidy has shared a moving tribute she has in her garden for her late mum, who died when she was 19.

Taking to her Instagram page early this morning, the actress revealed that her brother had bought her a touching gift to remember their mum by for her 30th birthday.

The photo showed stunning flowers and green leaves growing over a block with Evelyn’s name written on it.

Natalie explained in the post’s caption: “This is our Evelyn Rose.

“My brother bought it for me for my 30th birthday. It’s 7 and a bit years old and has never looked better. My dad loves it and cares for it.

“I lost my mum when I was 19 – her name was Evelyn.”

She added how much she appreciated having something close by to remember her mum as her busy schedule sometimes stops her from getting to the cemetery.

The star wrote: “It’s nice to have something in your own space as well as a cemetery. Life is busy and you feel guilty for not going up there.”

Natalie previously admitted that she broke down over an EastEnders’ storyline about her onscreen mum Carol Jackson fighting cancer.

EastEnders’ Natalie Cassidy reveals co-star Steve McFadden refused to talk to her after she quit the soap

She plays Carol’s daughter Sonia in the BBC One soap, and the heartbreaking scenes brought back difficult memories for the star.

Natalie said at the time: “It’s all quite raw, there have been tears.”

She confessed that she “lost herself” after her mother’s death, but she didn’t seek help from a bereavement counsellor until she was hit by a second wave of grief when her “second mum” Wendy Richard, who played Pauline Fowler, died in 2009.

Natalie explained: “I hit rock bottom. I had to see someone about my mum, mistakes and regrets.”
