Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh issued the following statement on the results of the Republican Primary in Texas’ 12th Congressional District where incumbent Rep. Kay Granger defeated Club for Growth PAC endorsed candidate Chris Putnam.
“We congratulate Kay Granger on her victory,” said Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “Chris Putnam’s more than 40% share of the vote, Texas voters sent a clear message to Rep. Kay Granger in yesterday’s primary that she needs to start acting like a free market conservative. According to our polling, Granger started the race 57 points up, and on election day she only won by 16 points. We will continue to monitor Granger’s voting record to ensure she got the message. We will continue to watch to see if she fails to support President Trump’s cuts in future spending bills. Club for Growth PAC will also continue to look for other opportunities to defeat big-spenders in primaries across the country.”
Club for Growth PACs support principled, pro-growth conservatives in key elections across the country. In 2018, Club for Growth PACs won 85% races in the election while maintaining 8.9% overhead.
