NEW: Club for Growth Action Launches New Ads Across 5 Districts in TX-HD Runoffs


Washington, D.C. – Club for Growth Action has released 5 unique ads, spanning across 5 individual districts, in the Texas State House runoffs targeting incumbent Republicans who opposed school freedom in Texas. These ads are the latest in Club for Growth Action’s existing $4 million reservation in: TX-HD-01, TX-HD-21, TX-HD-33, TX-HD-44, and TX-HD-58.

“Parents in Texas, and across the country, are demanding a larger voice in the classroom to ensure their children receive the quality education they deserve,” said Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh. “You cannot call yourself a conservative if you side with radical education bureaucrats to muzzle parents and trap students in failing public schools. The status quo is unacceptable, and we will keep fighting until these RINOs are held accountable at the ballot box.”

Club for Growth Action, and its affiliated Super PAC School Freedom Fund, had previously invested $4 million leading up to the March 5th primaries in which 7 incumbents were defeated and the incumbents in these 5 districts were forced into runoffs.

  • Dallas-Ft. Worth: $2.1 million
  • Beaumont: $896,000
  • San Antonio: $657,000
  • Shreveport: $305,000
