“While the Republican primary field may be a crowded one, there’s only one true conservative in this race – and that’s Chip Roy. Club for Growth PAC is all-in and looks forward to all the great conservative policies Chip will champion when he comes to serve Texas in Congress in 2019.”

“Club for Growth commends Senator Jeff Flake for his many years of service in first the House of Representatives and most recently in the U.S. Senate.

Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Representative Marsha Blackburn (TN-07), who is running for the seat currently held by Sen. Bob Corker, who announced he plans to retire.
“Club for Growth PAC is excited to announce support for Congressman Marsha Blackburn in her run for U.S. Senate,” stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “Club for Growth PAC first endorsed Rep. Blackburn during her initial run for Congress in 2002, and today, 15 years later, Club for Growth PAC is just as excited to endorse Rep. Blackburn as a candidate for the U.S. Senate.”
“Earning a lifetime score of 90 percent on Club for Growth’s scorecard is no easy feat, but it is if you’re a conservative leader like Marsha Blackburn. Despite her time serving in Washington, Marsha has never become ‘of Washington.’ She has remained loyal to her conservative principles throughout her time in Congress.
“Club for Growth PAC is confident that Marsha will continue to fight for fiscal responsibility when she is elected to the Senate next fall. The seventh district of Tennessee is fortunate to have a representative who keeps campaign promises and fights for free-market economic principles and now the entire state of Tennessee can look forward to having that as well.”

“Club for Growth PAC is absolutely thrilled to announce our support for Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley in his bid to unseat Senator Claire McCaskill, stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “Josh is an ideal candidate who possesses conservative credentials and a commitment to pro-market economic principles few can match.”
“From his time clerking at the Supreme Court to serving as the Show Me state’s attorney general, Josh has demonstrated a keen knowledge of federal policy and is devoted to defending the Constitution against government overreach.
“Unlike out-of-touch liberal Claire McCaskill, Missourians will be able to count on Josh to be a strong voice for fiscal sanity. Josh also isn’t afraid to tackle the cronyism that plagues Claire McCaskill and the rest of the Washington swamp.”
