WASHINGTON – Club for Growth PAC today endorsed U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake in the 2012 U.S. Senate election in Arizona.  Flake launched his candidacy today, in the wake of Sen. Jon Kyl’s decision to retire from the Senate after this term.

“Jeff Flake is a proven, tireless champion for economic freedom, and Club for Growth PAC will do everything it can in the Republican primary and the general election to help him win this race,” said Club President Chris Chocola.

“Jon Kyl has been a strong, clear-eyed leader on pro-growth economic principles his entire career, and both Arizona and the country have benefited from his years of service,” Chocola said.  “Jeff Flake will make a perfect successor to Kyl in the seat.”

“It is of course commendable that Jeff Flake strongly opposed the worst policies of the Obama Administration, like the failed stimulus and the health care takeover," Chocola added.  "But what’s really impressive about Jeff is that he had the guts to strongly oppose the worst policies of the Bush Administration and of the previous Republican Congress, like earmarks, bailouts, and the prescription drug entitlement.  That’s the kind of courage in the fight for freedom and limited government we need in the U.S. Senate.”

During the 2008 election cycle, Club for Growth PAC was instrumental in electing the most pro-growth, limited government conservative class in recent congressional history.  Club members supported Senate candidates like Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson,  Rand Paul to the tune of $8.4 million.

Flake is the first candidate Club for Growth PAC has endorsed in the 2012 election cycle.
