The Fight Isn’t Over…

Madeline Rainwater - November 11th, 2016

On Tuesday, Republicans saw a unprecedented victory up and down the ticket. As a result, the GOP now has a majority in the House and the Senate, not to mention the Executive branch of government.

Today, Mark Levin reminded us that this newfound majority should “ advance our principles … the principles they said that they would institute”.

There’s a temptation to say the fight is over as soon as we get good conservatives into congress, but as our founders noted, eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. The Club will continue to evaluate legislation and provide key vote alerts to members of congress  when we find opportunities to fight for economic growth.

The Club for Growth PAC Senate Trifecta

Doug Sachtleben - November 09th, 2016

“The Club for Growth PACs played a decisive and strategic role in the victories of Senators Toomey, Rubio, and Johnson.”

Washington, DC – The Club for Growth PAC released the following statement after its endorsed Senate candidates won re-election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Florida:

“The Club for Growth PAC is extraordinarily proud of its decisive and strategic role in the victories of Senators Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, and Ron Johnson,” said Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “The Democrats and their outside groups threw everything they had at the Senate races in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Florida, but the Club’s PACs successfully returned fire. Toomey, Rubio, and Johnson were all endorsed by the Club’s PAC in November 2014, and Club members bundled more than $1 million to their campaigns, while the Club and its PACs spent more than $6 million on strategic independent expenditures.

“And, it wasn’t just the amounts that made the difference. Tactical research and timing of spending by the Club’s PACs turned the tide. In Pennsylvania, CFG Action ramped up spending in the closing weeks – at a time when spending by outside groups favored the Democrat by $8 million. Within a week, numerous groups followed our lead, and that gap was closed with an effort that ultimately made the difference. The Club’s PAC also focused on a conservative economic message to driver voter turnout, which helped up and down the ballot.

“In Wisconsin, nearly all of the outside groups had shifted resources away from the state over the summer. In early October, CFG Action polling identified a path to victory for Ron Johnson and we re-entered the race with nearly $800,000 in spending on October 14. We tested our message and encouraged other Republican groups to re-engage. Over the next two weeks, numerous groups also started strategic spending that continued to turn the tide in Johnson’s favor.

“The Club for Growth PACs were fully committed to the re-election of these pro-growth champions and Toomey, Johnson, and Rubio will continue to be strong voices for economic conservatism in the U.S. Senate.”
