Club for Growth Action Approaches $2 Million Mark In Texas Senate RaceLink to Article: http://www.clubforgrowth.org/perm/pr/?postID=1085
Washington, DC – Club for Growth Action announced today that it is adding to its original efforts in the United States Senate race in Texas. In the Republican primary, Club for Growth Action is now approaching $2 million spent in the last week alone on efforts to oppose the candidacy of Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. The Club for Growth PAC has endorsed former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz in the race.
Club for Growth Action previously announced a $1 million independent expenditure campaign highlighting “moderate” Dewhurst’s support for an income tax for Texas.
“David Dewhurst and his allies are trying to destroy free-market champion Ted Cruz with negative attacks, but we won’t let him,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “It’s clear that Dewhurst and his allies have become desperate to avoid a runoff with Ted Cruz, because they know that David Dewhurst doesn’t come close to comparing with Ted Cruz on the issues. Ted Cruz is a principled conservative who will fight the big-spenders in both parties, while David Dewhurst is an establishment moderate who will fight conservatives in Washington just like he’s done in Austin.”
