Founder and President of National Tax Limitation Committee Supports US Senate Campaign
(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Emken, an accomplished businesswoman specializing in efficiency and cost-cutting, and nationally recognized advocate for autism research and treatment, today announced that Lew Uhler, president and founder of the National Tax Limitation Committee, has officially endorsed her campaign.
Uhler, a legendary figure among America’s taxpayer advocates, joins an impressive list of conservative leaders who have endorsed Emken for U.S. Senate, including former California Secretary of State Bill Jones.
“I had the pleasure of working closely with Ronald Reagan; we brought about fiscal change and fiscal responsibility,” stated Uhler. “Elizabeth Emken has that same conservative commitment. She’s a fighter and has the willpower to take on an entrenched liberal like Dianne Feinstein.”
Emken has served as Vice President of Government Relations at Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest science and advocacy organization devoted to the public health emergency of autism. Before becoming active with the autism issue, Elizabeth served as an efficiency and cost cutting expert at IBM, streamlining operations, eliminating waste and achieving multi-million dollar savings.
Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with dual degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies also included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on international political and economic issues throughout China and the Middle East.
