Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement in response to Senator Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) retirement announcement:
“Club for Growth commends Senator Jeff Flake for his many years of service in first the House of Representatives and most recently in the U.S. Senate.
“For over a decade, Club for Growth has had the privilege of calling Jeff a friend and has fought with him to promote economic freedom and prosperity. Senator Flake maintained a life-time average of 96 percent on Club for Growth’s scorecard – a distinction few have earned. A tried and true fiscal conservative, Jeff fought to eliminate earmarks before it was cool.
“Club for Growth is grateful for the commitment Senator Flake has made to fighting to bring fiscal sanity to Washington. We wish him the very best in his next endeavor.”

Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Representative Marsha Blackburn (TN-07), who is running for the seat currently held by Sen. Bob Corker, who announced he plans to retire.
“Club for Growth PAC is excited to announce support for Congressman Marsha Blackburn in her run for U.S. Senate,” stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “Club for Growth PAC first endorsed Rep. Blackburn during her initial run for Congress in 2002, and today, 15 years later, Club for Growth PAC is just as excited to endorse Rep. Blackburn as a candidate for the U.S. Senate.”
“Earning a lifetime score of 90 percent on Club for Growth’s scorecard is no easy feat, but it is if you’re a conservative leader like Marsha Blackburn. Despite her time serving in Washington, Marsha has never become ‘of Washington.’ She has remained loyal to her conservative principles throughout her time in Congress.
“Club for Growth PAC is confident that Marsha will continue to fight for fiscal responsibility when she is elected to the Senate next fall. The seventh district of Tennessee is fortunate to have a representative who keeps campaign promises and fights for free-market economic principles and now the entire state of Tennessee can look forward to having that as well.”
Club for Growth Applauds President Trump’s Executive Order Introducing Market Competition to Healthcare
Rachael Slobodien - October 12th, 2017
Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s executive order calling for policies that will increase healthcare competition and lower healthcare costs while improving the quality of care:
“Club for Growth applauds President Trump’s executive order, which will help to roll back some of Obamacare’s most harmful regulations,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh.
“Allowing health insurance to be sold across state lines will introduce much-needed competition into the health care industry and do much to lower insurance costs.”
“Thanks to the disaster that is Obamacare our nation’s health insurance market is hemorrhaging; health insurance costs are through the roof. Because of Obamacare, millions of middle-class families have lost or can no longer afford their health insurance. Instead of allowing the hemorrhaging to continue, our nation should embrace free markets and competition wherever possible.
“The president’s leadership and action on this issue is critical, particularly in contrast to the Senate’s inability to repeal Obamacare. As much as liberals may hate to hear it, the legislative text of Obamacare provides for much latitude and executive branch discretion in the law’s implementation.
“So until Congress acts to repeal and replace Obamacare with a truly free-market healthcare system, Club for Growth will continue to encourage President Trump to act within the full extent of his executive authority to mitigate Obamacare’s disastrous impact and bring competition to the healthcare industry.”
