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.”

Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, who is running against incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO).
“Club for Growth PAC is absolutely thrilled to announce our support for Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley in his bid to unseat Senator Claire McCaskill, stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “Josh is an ideal candidate who possesses conservative credentials and a commitment to pro-market economic principles few can match.”
“From his time clerking at the Supreme Court to serving as the Show Me state’s attorney general, Josh has demonstrated a keen knowledge of federal policy and is devoted to defending the Constitution against government overreach.
“Unlike out-of-touch liberal Claire McCaskill, Missourians will be able to count on Josh to be a strong voice for fiscal sanity. Josh also isn’t afraid to tackle the cronyism that plagues Claire McCaskill and the rest of the Washington swamp.”

Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth PAC released poll results that reveal North Dakota voters are ready for someone other than Sen. Heidi Heitkamp to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Highlights from the poll can be found here. The findings certainly make Heitkamp’s reelection chances difficult.
Specifically, the polling revealed:
- According to likely voters, Heitkamp hasn’t accomplished enough and doesn’t deserve reelection. A plurality of North Dakota voters now believe it’s time to elect someone new.
- North Dakota State Treasurer Kelly Schmidt leads Heitkamp on the ballot by four points.
- Heitkamp’s refusal to repeal Obamacare is damaging. Heitkamp possesses a number of vulnerabilities, but casting the deciding vote against Obamacare repeal is especially damaging to her reelection prospects.
The survey was conducted for Club for Growth by WPAi on September 10-11, 2017. The study has a sample size of n=406 likely voters (40% cell phone interviews) and a margin of error equal to ±4.9% in 95 out of 100 cases.
Club for Growth PAC and Club for Growth Action are political arms of the Club for Growth, a 501(c)(4).

Washington, DC – Today, the Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Texas state senator Van Taylor for United States House of Representatives. Taylor is running for the seat held by retiring Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03).
“Club for Growth PAC is thrilled to announce its support for Van Taylor and his campaign for Congress,” stated Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh.
“Van is the definition of a tried-and-true economic conservative, and he is exactly the type of candidate Club for Growth PAC seeks to endorse. As a state senator Van has proven himself to be the real deal; he has fought for taxpayers and has a pro-growth legislative record to show for it. We have no doubt he will serve Texas well as the future Congressman of the third district.”
