Club for Growth PAC Endorses Chris Herrod (UT-03); Club for Growth Action Launches Ad Exposing John Curtis’ Tax-Hiking Record

Rachael Slobodien - August 04th, 2017

“Chris Herrod is a tried and true fiscal conservative with a proven record.”

Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Chris Herrod, former Utah State Representative, for the special election to fill the UT-03 House seat, formerly held by Jason Chaffetz.   Club for Growth Action also unveiled a new TV and digital ad, entitled “Halloween,” which exposes John Curtis’ consistent support for tax increases and Tanner Ainge’s intent to be “bipartisan” and work with the likes of Nancy Pelosi.

“Chris Herrod is a tried and true fiscal conservative with a proven record,” stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh.

“Unlike others in this race, Chris’ words match his impeccable, pro-growth record, and Utahns can count on Chris to fight for them.

“While some so-called Republicans in this primary only now support lowering taxes, Chris has fought for the Utah taxpayer for decades.  In his time serving the state of Utah, Chris earned some of the most impressive distinctions for his work protecting Utah taxpayers.

“When casting a vote for Chris Herrod, Utahns know exactly what they’re getting—a principled, economic conservative dedicated to protecting taxpayers instead of lobbyists and special interests.”

Club for Growth Action’s new ad can be viewed here and will begin airing August 7 on broadcast and cable networks across Utah’s 3rd district.

Club for Growth PAC: Missouri Voters Want Claire McCaskill Out

Rachael Slobodien - July 14th, 2017

“It’s time for Missouri’s senior senator to say hello to retirement.”

Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth PAC released poll results that reveal Missouri voters are ready to see someone besides Claire McCaskill serving as their U.S. Senator.

The results are resounding.  Highlights from the poll can be found here.  The findings are overwhelmingly unfavorable for Claire McCaskill’s reelection prospects.  Specifically, the polling revealed:

  • A plurality of Missouri voters view Claire McCaskill unfavorably.
  • A clear majority of Missourians favor a new person in office by a double-digit margin.
  • Josh Hawley leads Claire McCaskill in a hypothetical U.S. Senate matchup despite a disadvantage in name awareness.

Upon release of this poll, Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh remarked, “What this polling reveals is that it’s time for out-of-touch liberal Claire McCaskill to say hello to retirement.  You don’t have to be a professional pollster to decipher the poll’s findings.  The numbers say it all: Missourians basically would rather elect anyone rather than voting to re-elect McCaskill.

“Her tax-and-spend ways and relentless defense of Obamacare is coming back to haunt her.  Enough is enough.  Missourians deserve some new blood serving them in the Senate, and Claire McCaskill is not it.”

The survey was conducted for Club for Growth PAC by Fabrizio, Lee & Associates, a leading polling firm, on July 10-11, 2017.   The margin of error at the 95% confidence interval for 500 voters is ±4.38.
