Club for Growth Action Releases Radio Ad in SC-04

Rachael Slobodien - May 31st, 2018

Today, Club for Growth Action announced the release of a radio ad highlighting the negative statements two Republican candidates running for Congress in South Carolina’s fourth district, William Timmons and Dan Hamilton, have made about President Trump.

Upon release of the radio ad, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh noted, “President Trump needs allies in Congress. Unfortunately, both William Timmons and Dan Hamilton’s previous statements about President Trump demonstrate they will not be reliable advocates to advance President Trump’s policies in Congress.

“President Trump has fought hard to lower taxes, while William Timmons has voted to increase taxes. President Trump is trying to reduce spending, but Dan Hamilton has voted for millions of dollars in earmarks and wasteful spending. Furthermore, Dan Hamilton’s biggest financial backers are the Realtors who spent millions of dollars opposing President Trump’s tax reform bill.”

Earl: Floyd, you keep up on political news, don’t cha?

Floyd: Well, long time ‘til college football, Earl. Gotta follow somethin’.

E: Ok, did ‘ya see where William Timmons attacked Trump?   Says here – - quotin’ Timmons no less – - “I absolutely have major issues with many things Trump does.”

F: Yep. Major issues with Trump. That’s Timmons.

E: Didn’t he also say he wasn’t sure Trump was a Republican?

F: Did not. That was Dan Hamilton.

E: What?

F: We got two Trump-trashers running for Congress. Timmons AND Hamilton. Hamilton said he wasn’t sure Trump was a Republican. Not HIS kind of Republican, he said.

E: Do tell.

F: Yep, Hamilton even said he loathed Trump. Loathed. That means he didn’t like him, Earl, like a lot.

E: I know that, Floyd. And I know this: If Timmons and Hamilton wanna talk like liberals about President Trump, we don’t need either one of ‘em in Congress.

Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s imposition of tariffs on U.S. allies including Europe, Canada, and Mexico:

“Tariffs, on our nation’s closest allies no less, will reverse the positive impact of President Trump’s historic tax cuts,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “Furthermore, history tells us tariffs will harm our nation’s economic growth and will trigger a trade war that will wreak the greatest harm on hardworking Americans.

Russ Fagg Says: “Look at My Record.” Club for Growth Action Says: “Let’s Do It.”

Rachael Slobodien - May 29th, 2018

New Ads Expose Fagg’s Failures on the Bench

Today, Club for Growth Action announced the release of new TV, radio, and digital ads that document Russ Fagg’s weak record on public safety. This is an additional $250,000 expenditure on top of an existing ad buy.

Transcripts of the TV and radio ads can be found below. For more about Fagg’s record, visit FactsforMontana.com.

Upon release of the ads, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh stated, “Russ Fagg talks about ‘Montana Values,’ but his own values would take Montana in a very bad direction. Time and time again, when Russ had the opportunity to stand up for victims and against criminals, he chose to defend the latter. Fagg even praised other judges for very poor choices.   Now that he’s running for Senate, Russ Fagg is trying to tell a different story. We won’t let him get away with that. The people of Montana deserve a U.S. Senator who tells the truth and that’s why Club for Grow Action is determined to continue to educate voters across the state about Fagg’s real record.”

Russ Fagg says look at his record. OK.

Fagg defended a judge who suggested a 14-year-old rape victim was to blame for her own attack.

Fagg said a judge who undercut Trump’s effort to rollback job-killing environmental rules was a “thoughtful moderate.”

And while Fagg talks tough on immigration, he praised a liberal federal judge who ruled against speeding up deportations.

Russ Fagg’s values are not Montana values.

Right Dear

W: Well, I’m right again.

M: What now?

W: Remember you said it’s hard to believe Russ Fagg cut 45 years off the maximum sentence for that guy who attacked a woman and her six-year old?

M: Mmhmm.

W: Well, now Fagg admits it.

M: Really?

W: Fagg says that’s what the prosecutor wanted . . .

M: So, tough guy Fagg just does what the prosecutor says?   That’s pretty wimpy.

W: It’s pretty political. Fagg claims credit for a popular sentence and points at somebody else when it’s unpopular.

M: Whoa, it’s worse. I just checked out that FactsForMontana.com website. It shows where Fagg praised some liberal judge who ruled against immigration rules designed to deport illegals and ruled against Trump for cutting back those goo-goo environmental rules that are killing jobs.

W: Fagg praised the guy?

M: Yep. Look it up. FactsForMontana.com. Russ Fagg used to be a judge. Now, he’s just another politician.
