Club for Growth Applauds SCOTUS Decision Affirming Individual’s Right to Keep What He Earns

Rachael Slobodien - June 27th, 2018

Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement after the Supreme Court issued its ruling in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, which overturned a prior case that allowed public-sector unions to charge non-union members “agency fees.”

“Today’s decision is a victory for American workers and our natural right to keep what we earn,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh.  “As a result of the Supreme Court’s ruling, the state will no longer be able to take money from a worker’s paycheck for political organizations without the individual’s consent.

“For far too long, unions have forced workers like Janus to subsidize far-left political activities with which he disagreed.  The ruling today puts an end to that corrupt, tyrannical practice and reaffirms one of the core tenets of our democratic system.”

Club for Growth Action: Kevin McCarthy’s Political Machine Attacks Conservative, Harming McCarthy’s Bid for Speaker of the House

Rachael Slobodien - June 22nd, 2018

In response to ads being aired by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s front group, Club for Growth Action announced today that it will match the Conservative Leadership Alliance’s ad buy in OK-01.

Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh offered the following statement:

“Kevin McCarthy’s political machine is acting irresponsibly and putting his own political ambitions in jeopardy.  This demonstrates that Kevin McCarthy doesn’t realize he will need conservative support to be Speaker of the House.

“The Conservative Leadership Alliance’s attacks are particularly ironic given that their preferred candidate hired Axiom Strategies, the very consulting firm that spent millions upon millions attacking Donald Trump.

“This just goes to show the desperate lengths Kevin McCarthy will go to in trying to conceal the fact that Kevin Hern, McCarthy’s group’s preferred candidate, personally donated to the Democratic Senator who cast the deciding vote to pass Obamacare.

“And the cherry on top of this all is that Hern had begged for the Club for Growth PAC’s endorsement.”

Rachael Slobodien - June 20th, 2018

Today, Club for Growth Action announced the release of new ads highlighting William Timmons’ support for increasing the gas tax.  This ad buy is $230,000 and is running on broadcast, cable, and digital throughout South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District.

Upon release of the TV ads, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh noted:

“William Timmons is on tape stoking the fires for a massive gas tax increase in South Carolina.  Then Timmons cynically voted against the bill hoping no one would find out he really had helped get it passed.

“William Timmons will make it worse in Washington; no wonder he doesn’t support President Trump.”

Club for Growth PAC Condemns Leah Vukmir’s Negative Campaigning

Rachael Slobodien - June 20th, 2018

Club for Growth PAC today condemned Leah Vukmir for starting a negative campaign built on name-calling, smears, and false attacks against conservative outsider Kevin Nicholson.  The national Club for Growth has nearly 12,000 members in Wisconsin and is one of the leading pro-growth organizations.

“Leah Vukmir is taking this campaign into the gutter and hurting Republicans’ ability to defeat Tammy Baldwin in November,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh.

“She has been pushing false mail pieces that lie about Kevin Nicholson in an attempt to divide conservatives and has turned to negative campaigning. Conservatives will not sit idly by while Vukmir tries to run conservative outsider Kevin Nicholson’s name through the mud.”

Before the state convention Vukmir sent out a negative mail piece attacking Nicholson and trying to claim he was not a conservative outsider. It was the first paid negative attack by either candidate.  Below is a copy of negative mailer Vukmir’s campaign sent out.

Club for Growth PAC Endorses Lee Bright for Congress

Rachael Slobodien - June 20th, 2018

Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of former South Carolina State Senator Lee Bright, who is running for Congress in South Carolina’s fourth congressional district, to replace Congressman Trey Gowdy, who is retiring at the end of this term.

“Club for Growth PAC is endorsing Lee Bright for Congress,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh.

“Lee is the proven conservative in the runoff.  As a state senator, Lee demonstrated a long track record as a fiscal conservative.  He was a reliable opponent to tax hikes, bloated budgets, and crony capitalism programs.  Congress needs more liberty-minded conservatives like Lee Bright.”
