Washington, D.C. — In case you missed it, Club for Growth released a new ad in Indiana’s Senate Race reminding voters of Mitch Daniels’ record of being a big government, tax and spend Republican. Gregg Montgomery from WISHTV Indianapolis covered the new ad in an exclusive report.
“As even Mitch Daniels admits, his brand of Republicanism is out of date. Hoosiers need new leadership to tackle the problems that Mitch and other moderates created over 50 years. Daniels will be this cycle’s Pat McCrory if he decides to run, and Club for Growth Action will spend whatever it takes to ensure voters know his real record.” – David McIntosh, President, Club for Growth Action.
