“These guys ran against Washington, but they ran against the bad parts of Washington — the bloated bureaucracy and Nancy Pelosi’s agenda. That’s not a contradiction to take money from a trade group or corporation that represents free-enterprise principles.”

Those free-enterprise supporting corporations include Rolls-Royce, Deloitte, ExxonMobil, Yum Brands, Delta Airlines, K&L; Gates (the lobbyists) and the National Automotive Dealers Association PAC.
