Club for Growth Action went all in for Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Senate race. And we have no regrets.
Chris McDaniel is a champion of economic freedom and CFG Action is proud to have done everything within its power to try to elect him to the United States Senate.
As you know, Club for Growth Action spends money only in races where its involvement can make a difference. This means CFG Action doesn’t spend money on a sure thing. We are risk takers.
And CFG Action’s track record of helping to elect champions of economic freedom like Senators Marco Rubio (FL), Rand Paul (KY), Mike Lee (UT), Ron Johnson (WI), Ted Cruz (TX), Jeff Flake (AZ), and Pat Toomey (PA) shows that we are calculated
The Mississippi Senate race was a calculated risk – unfortunately, this one didn’t go our way. But it was close. Very close.
And we suspect that Senator Thad Cochran – and all Establishment Republicans – gained a new appreciation for voter frustration about the threats to economic freedom and national solvency.
Chris McDaniel would have been a pro-growth, limited government champion in the United States Senate. And while 2014 didn’t go his way, this race reminds me of a similar race where the Club’s PAC was involved ten years ago.
Ten years ago, Club for Growth PAC endorsed and funded a challenge against a long-time U.S. Senator in that Republican primary. The GOP Establishment, from the President of the United States on down, came in heavily against our candidate, and he very narrowly lost that election. The state was Pennsylvania. The challenger was Pat Toomey. The incumbent was Arlen Specter. Six years later, Specter switched to the Democratic Party, and Toomey was elected to the U.S. Senate where he now serves with great distinction.
And so we learn from the past as we look toward the future. And Club for Growth Action sees a very bright future for a number of Senate races in which it has been heavily involved this cycle.
Ben Sasse won the Republican primary in Nebraska due in large part to the efforts of CFG Action. He is a strong favorite in the general election.
And Club for Growth Action has already begun spending money in the Arkansas Senate race on behalf of Tom Cotton and the Alaska Senate race on behalf of Dan Sullivan.
Ben, Tom, and Dan are champions of economic freedom. And they all have an excellent shot of winning this November. And if they do win, they will be critical additions to the already expanding pro-growth caucus in the United States Senate. And Club members, like you, will have made that happen.
And so today I thank you. I thank you for your generosity, your trust, and your fighting spirit.
President, Club for Growth
