Other Competitive Races

Every election cycle, Club for Growth PAC assembles a list for Club for Growth members of other competitive races that may help determine a Republican Majority in Congress.

Club for Growth PAC only endorses candidates that meet our high standard of pro-growth, economic conservatism, but often Club members have questions about other races in which we have not made an endorsement. In this election cycle in particular, with the Republican Majority on the line in both the House and the Senate, this list seeks to inform members about the state of those races.
