Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement after reports that Senator Mike Rounds intends to vote against Scott Garrett, President Trump’s nominee to lead the Ex-Im Bank:
“South Dakotans deserve better than a politician who opposes President Trump and his nominees,” explained Club for Growth President David McIntosh.
“Sen. Rounds is placing special interests and lobbyists above the interests of the American people by stating he will vote against Scott Garrett, President Trump’s nominee for the Ex-Im Bank. A vote against Scott Garrett is a vote for business as usual in Washington. Rounds’ opposition will serve to protect the swamp and its creatures rather drain it.”
“Additionally, as Club for Growth has stated before, no nominees for the Ex-Im Bank should be confirmed unless Garrett is confirmed.”
