Rachael Slobodien - June 20th, 2018

Today, Club for Growth Action announced the release of new ads highlighting William Timmons’ support for increasing the gas tax.  This ad buy is $230,000 and is running on broadcast, cable, and digital throughout South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District.

Upon release of the TV ads, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh noted:

“William Timmons is on tape stoking the fires for a massive gas tax increase in South Carolina.  Then Timmons cynically voted against the bill hoping no one would find out he really had helped get it passed.

“William Timmons will make it worse in Washington; no wonder he doesn’t support President Trump.”
