Washington, D.C. – Club for Growth PAC announced the endorsement of Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, and Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh issued the following statement.
“Nick Freitas is a principled, pro-growth conservative and well positioned to win the Republican primary and beat the liberal Pelosi loyalist, Rep. Abigail Spanberger,” said McIntosh. “Despite claiming to be independent on the campaign trail, Spanberger voted with Nancy Pelosi and the emerging socialist wing of the Democratic party once she got into office, not a good fit for a district that President Trump won by more that 6%.”
This summer, Club for Growth released an analysis of the voting records of newly elected Democrat members of the House of Representatives in districts that were previously held by Republicans. Rep. Spanberger has voted with Speaker Nancy Pelosi 92.86% of the time and with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 89.23% of the time.
Club for Growth PACs support principled, pro-growth conservatives in key elections across the country. In 2018, Club for Growth PACs won 14 of 17 races on Election Day while maintaining 8.9% overhead.
