Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement Kevin Nicholson for the 2018 U.S. Senate race, and the seat currently held by Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
“Club for Growth PAC is thrilled to announce support for Kevin Nicholson and his campaign for U.S. Senate,” stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh.
“Kevin is not just a political outsider, he’s a strong economic conservative, who understands that free markets and limited government are the engines of economic growth.
“Kevin will be a great Senator for the Badger State because, unlike out-of-touch liberal Tammy Baldwin, Kevin understands the needs of everyday Wisconsinites. And he’ll fight hard for them every day he serves as their United States Senator.”

KEY VOTE ALERT
Sign The Discharge Petition for Obamacare Repeal (HR 1436)
The Club for Growth urges all House members to sign Rep. Tom Garrett’s discharge petition to force a vote on Rep. Jim Jordan’s 2015-style repeal of Obamacare (HR 1436). Signing the petition will be positively scored on the Club’s 2017 congressional scorecard.
House Republicans promised repeal of Obamacare for over seven years. In 2015, the House passed their bill that largely fulfilled that promise. The American Healthcare Act was not full repeal and was diluted precisely because too many Republicans no longer support repeal. It’s time to hold all House members accountable. It’s time to force a vote.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 115th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
Club for Growth Leads Coalition Urging President Trump to Stand Firm against Special Interest Pressure to Drop Ex-Im Pick
Rachael Slobodien - August 07th, 2017
“It is beyond audacious that the recipients of the Bank’s subsidies believe they can select the person to run the very agency that will hand the goodies out to them.”
Washington, DC –Today, Club for Growth sent a coalition letter to Senator Michael Crapo, Senate Chairman of the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, to denounce special interests who seek to strongarm President Trump into dropping the appointment of Scott Garrett as the next president of the Export-Import Bank. Additionally, the conservative organizations announce opposition to any nomination (or slate of nominations) to Ex-Im’s board if Garrett’s nomination is not considered.
The letter can be read in its entirety below or can be viewed in pdf version by clicking this link.
Dear Chairman Crapo,
On behalf of the following organizations representing millions of Americans, we write to strongly denounce the special interest business groups that are urging the White House to drop the appointment of Scott Garrett as the next president of the Export-Import Bank.
It is beyond audacious that the recipients of the Bank’s subsidies believe that they, not the President, can select the person to run the very agency that will hand the goodies out to them. This is regulatory capture at its worst.
Cronyism and corruption have long plagued the Bank’s operations. When special interests publicly demand their spoils in such an egregious manner, it only further erodes the public’s confidence in their government.
President Trump has successfully appointed reformers to lead other agencies – like Scott Pruitt at the EPA and Betsy DeVos at the Department of Education. His appointment of Garrett is in keeping with his courageous reform agenda to “drain the swamp.” For special interest groups to dictate the terms of his appointments is precisely the wrong message to send to the American people.
As recently as 2015, the Bank had almost 800 fraud claims levied against it. There have been 85 indictments, 48 criminal judgements, and 66 years of prison sentences brought to bear because of the Bank’s activities. Letting special interests continue to control the Bank’s leadership and operations will only extend this disastrously corrupt track record.
We’re extremely hopeful that President Trump will ignore the special interests that are so desperate for their Export-Import Bank gravy train to continue. To that end, our groups and the people we represent, will vocally oppose any nomination (or slate of nominations) to Ex-Im’s board if Garrett’s nomination is not considered.

Club for Growth PAC Endorses Chris Herrod (UT-03); Club for Growth Action Launches Ad Exposing John Curtis’ Tax-Hiking Record
Rachael Slobodien - August 04th, 2017
“Chris Herrod is a tried and true fiscal conservative with a proven record.”
Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Chris Herrod, former Utah State Representative, for the special election to fill the UT-03 House seat, formerly held by Jason Chaffetz. Club for Growth Action also unveiled a new TV and digital ad, entitled “Halloween,” which exposes John Curtis’ consistent support for tax increases and Tanner Ainge’s intent to be “bipartisan” and work with the likes of Nancy Pelosi.
“Chris Herrod is a tried and true fiscal conservative with a proven record,” stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh.
“Unlike others in this race, Chris’ words match his impeccable, pro-growth record, and Utahns can count on Chris to fight for them.
“While some so-called Republicans in this primary only now support lowering taxes, Chris has fought for the Utah taxpayer for decades. In his time serving the state of Utah, Chris earned some of the most impressive distinctions for his work protecting Utah taxpayers.
“When casting a vote for Chris Herrod, Utahns know exactly what they’re getting—a principled, economic conservative dedicated to protecting taxpayers instead of lobbyists and special interests.”
Club for Growth Action’s new ad can be viewed here and will begin airing August 7 on broadcast and cable networks across Utah’s 3rd district.
