MSNBC's Rachel Maddow
reports on "FreedomWorks"
& Dick Armey's Role - 08/11/09
According to the Star-Telegram article, Texas political veteran and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey is traveling with Hutchison to endorse her candidacy.

In 2009, FreedomWorks, which is headed by Dick Armey, launched a campaign against President Barack Obama's health care proposals, accusing the Obama administration of attempting to "socialize medicine."

In Rachel Maddow's investigative report the reporter says that FreedomWorks' strategy has been to disrupt and shut down the August 2009 town hall congressional meetings on health care reform. Sen. Hutchison has said she opposes Pres. Obama's call for national health care reform.
