TV Ads By Club for Growth Action slam Dewhurst in Texas, expose Upton in Michigan; Club for Growth PAC Ads Ask Of Tim Murphy “Why’d He Do That?”
 
Washington, DC – Two political arms of the Club for Growth, Club for Growth Action and Club for Growth PAC, today announced that they are launching a substantial three-state TV advertising blitz in Texas, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. The ads are scheduled to start running today. The details are as follows:
 
TX-SEN (Open Seat)
In Texas’s U.S. Senate race, Club for Growth Action is launching two fifteen second spots targeting Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst’s support for higher taxes and for expanding Texas’s participation in federal government-sponsored health care. The Club for Growth PAC has endorsed former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz for the seat.

“David Dewhurst pushed to raise business and sales taxes, implement a wage tax, and supported expanding Texas’ participation in government-sponsored health care. David Dewhurst is wrong for conservatives and he’s wrong for Texas,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola.  “Ted Cruz is the best choice for Republicans because he will stand up for the Constitution, fight to repeal the Obama agenda, and restore limited government and economic freedom to America. David Dewhurst won’t.”
 
MI-06 (Upton)
In Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District, Club for Growth Action is launching a thirty second TV advertisement slamming liberal Michigan Republican Fred Upton. Fred Upton voted to bail out Wall Street, supported billions in wasteful earmark spending like Alaska’s infamous “bridge to nowhere”, and to raise the debt limit by trillions while raising his own pay by thousands. The Club for Growth Action advertisement aims to educate Michigan voters about Fred Upton’s record. It is part of Club for Growth Action’s ongoing effort to inform the public about the voting records of Members of Congress. The ads are scheduled to start running today throughout Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District.

The Club for Growth PAC has not made an endorsement in Michigan’s 6th Congressional District.
 
“Fred Upton voted to bail out Wall Street, supported billions in wasteful earmark spending and has voted to raise the debt limit by trillions while raising his own pay by thousands,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Michigan Republicans can do better than a Congressman who has consistently voted to balloon the size of our already bloated government. After twenty-five years of Fred Upton and his liberal policies, it’s time for a change.”
 
PA-18 (Murphy) 
In Pennsylvania’s Eighteenth Congressional District, the Club for Growth PAC is launching two different 15 second advertisements aimed at encouraging the constituents of Republican Congressman Tim Murphy to ask themselves the following question: “Why’d he do that?” Tim Murphy’s record certainly might leave some Pennsylvania Republicans asking themselves the same questions.  Tim Murphy has supported pro-union “Card Check” legislation and billions in wasteful earmark spending.

The Club for Growth PAC has not made an endorsement in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District.
 
“Tim Murphy owes his constituents an explanation,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola.  “He claims he’s fighting for Pennsylvania, but in Washington, he’s supporting liberal pro-union legislation and wasteful spending. Pennsylvania Republicans should ask themselves the following question: ‘Why’d he do that?’.”
