In response to ads being aired by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s front group, Club for Growth Action announced today that it will match the Conservative Leadership Alliance’s ad buy in OK-01.
Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh offered the following statement:
“Kevin McCarthy’s political machine is acting irresponsibly and putting his own political ambitions in jeopardy. This demonstrates that Kevin McCarthy doesn’t realize he will need conservative support to be Speaker of the House.
“The Conservative Leadership Alliance’s attacks are particularly ironic given that their preferred candidate hired Axiom Strategies, the very consulting firm that spent millions upon millions attacking Donald Trump.
“This just goes to show the desperate lengths Kevin McCarthy will go to in trying to conceal the fact that Kevin Hern, McCarthy’s group’s preferred candidate, personally donated to the Democratic Senator who cast the deciding vote to pass Obamacare.
“And the cherry on top of this all is that Hern had begged for the Club for Growth PAC’s endorsement.”
