Washington, DC –CFG Action Montana has launched a $600,000 television buy across Montana reminding voters just how much Washington has changed Sen. Jon Tester. The ad will run on broadcast, cable, and satellite TV across the state.
Entitled “Say What You Mean,” the ad highlights how Sen. Tester has “gone Washington” over his 12 years in the D.C. swamp. When Tester first ran, he promised Montana voters he would oppose increasing the debt limit and fight for fiscal responsibility in Washington. Twelve years later, Sen. Tester has voted to raise the national debt limit 11 times, adding trillions of dollars to the national debt. So much for fiscal responsibility.
You can watch the ad here:
“No doubt, Sen. Tester will attempt to run from his liberal record in an effort to deceive voters, but voters deserve to know the truth,” said CFG Action Montana President David McIntosh. “Over his 12 years in Washington, Sen. Tester has abandoned Montana in favor of Washington’s insider politics. Instead of forcing Congress to live within its means, Sen. Tester voted raise the national debt 11 times and sent Montana taxpayers the trillion dollar bill.”

A new ad is reminding Wisconsin voters that “President Trump needs fighters in the Senate. Fighters like Kevin Nicholson.” The ad, paid for by CFG Action Wisconsin, is part of an initial $250,000 ad buy.
“President Trump can count on U.S. Marine veteran and conservative outsider Kevin Nicholson to help him carry out his reform agenda,” said David McIntosh, President of CFG Action Wisconsin. “Professional politicians like Leah Vukmir can’t be trusted to make the tough votes needed to Make America Great Again.”

Today, Club for Growth PAC endorsed Congressman Dave Brat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.
Rep. Brat famously defeated Majority Leader Eric Cantor in an insurgent campaign in the 2014 Republican primary. Since joining Congress, he has been a steadfast voice for fiscal conservatism and economic freedom. Rep. Brat is a member of the Freedom Caucus and has a 97% lifetime rating on the Club for Growth scorecard.
In the general election, Rep. Brat faces liberal Democrat Abigail Spanberger, whose support for single-payer healthcare and tax increases is far outside the mainstream of this R +6 district.
“Club for Growth PAC is proud to endorse Cong. Dave Brat for reelection,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh said. “Since his insurgent win in 2014, Brat has proven himself to be a principled steward of taxpayer dollars, and a courageous voice for limited government. Club for Growth PAC is committed to making sure Rep. Brat returns to Congress next year.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth President David McIntosh today praised President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement.
“The Supreme Court will rule on many important economic and regulatory issues as well as the continued protection of political free speech as it did in cases like Citizens United. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a superbly qualified choice with a proven commitment to conservative constitutional jurisprudence”, McIntosh said.
“President Trump has demonstrated his commitment to economic conservatism and the Constitution with his nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh today, just as he did last year with his nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch. This decision will reverberate for decades to come, as the Supreme Court considers cases relating to fundamental freedoms and the role of government in our society. President Trump’s legacy of Supreme Court nominees will be heralded for a long time. We urge the U.S. Senate to move quickly to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.

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.”
